Default Compass Error on 7.7

As I mentioned in my last thread already, the compass function of the 7.7 leaves a bitter taste. But what I found out is: it seems to be a software problem. Only older apps seems to have the problem, newer ones seem to be right.

The attached picture show a Samsung Galaxy S2, a Nokia N 8, and two 7.7s next to each other. Please notice the compass of "GPS status & Toolbox" points to the right direction on the Tab, the "Compass 2.1.1" is correct on the S2 but 90 degrees off on the 7.7.

To me it looks like some change in the API... Any one else with similar observations?
