Unwanted Forced landscape orientation for keyboard/text apps on HTC Evo 4G

    I manually installed the Froyo update this morning. According to features' reports this should give me a 270 rotation. However, after choosing Automatic Rotation in settings, I found that anything with primarily text input defaults to and locks in landscape orientation. This includes google search, email, gtalk and text messaging.

    I prefer reading my email in portrait, so I can see more than 3 of the emails at a time. And since my text input is calibrated in portrait, landscape is just annoying me.

    How do I correct?

    Mine does this too and I can't stand it! I can't fix it either.

    Can anyone help?
