Sorry to have you experiment so much. Try replacing the = by a space:

--distiller "ps2pdf13 -dAutoRotatePages=/None"

and if that doesn't work we'll have to think about it for a while :-(.

If you have Apple's distiller chose there might be a problem; letting  
TeXShop use GS should not present a problem since that is the default  
used by simpdftex.

Good Luck,
