For wrong paper orientation you can try (in gnuplot):

set term post
set output "x.ps"
plot sin(x)

exporting a file in OpenOffice Draw or something similar. (I can try
to find it.)

Exactly that's the problem. Removing this particular option from the
default options that are applied to GS run solves the problem.
