There are 3 methods in the ieps filter. Both the gs and gs/imagmagik 'convert' import bring in BMP.  The thrid, using gs/pstoedit will bring in an EMF

With Windows builds both BMP imports rotate with no issue.  The pstoedit based EMF rotation loses portions of the image depending on the rotation angle.
Since the BMP seem OK, is this an issue with EPS or with the EMF as imported?

I didn't check rotation on export out to PDF or printing (gs or Windows printing) but could be issues there as well.
