this sounds like a bug i fixed a while ago in olpc-kbdshim, but
maybe something has been dropped along the way.

the problem was that in the F9-based XO-1 releases, the xrandr
command caused the screen to rotate in the wrong direction, but
no one really noticed, and the code that controls the rotation
simply adapted.  with F11, X11 changed, and old user-level code
now does the "wrong" thing.  what version of olpc-kdbshim package
is installed on this release?  from the logs, version 8-1 should
have the fix.
