When applying a preset containing a graduated filter to an image that is flipped either vertically or horizontally, the graduated filter is not placed correctly. I'm using Lightroom 4.1.

To reproduce:
1. Apply a graduated filter that increases the exposure significantly (so that it's easy to see) to the upper left corner of an image
2. Create a new preset, make sure you check the box for "Graduated Filters"
3. Apply the preset to an other image. Observe that the graduated filter is applied in the upper left corner
4. Undo applying the preset
5. Right click the image and choose Transform -> Flip Horizontal
6. Apply the preset to the flipped image. The graduated filter is now applied to the lower right corner! If it was applied to the upper right corner that would be really cool, and if it was applied to the upper left corner that would also be reasonable, but lower right just doesn't make any sense.

I have reinstalled Lightroom, and now it works for me too! It seems like it was only a problem with my old installation. That's great :) How can i close this thread?
