autohinter screws up rotated text

I have just used FreeType2 beta 8 with the autohinter and it screws up 
rotated text. What happens is that the characters are drawn in the right 
positions, on a rotated baseline, but they themselves are rotated by twice 
as much. The glyph is loaded by a special function that does the 
auto-hinting and makes a recursive call to the main glyph loader, which 
applies the current transformation. When the recursion unwinds there is no 
flag to tell the glyph loader that the transformation has been done, so it 
blithely does it again.

I don't think this has been fixed in the latest snapshot, so I'll try to 
find a fix, which shouldn't be too hard.
