I have some problems with orientation in combination with external editing.

- I import my CR2-files in Lightroom (5D II files, full size, DNG or CR2 doesn't matter)
- I go to Develop
- I right click and do Transform -> Flip Horizontal
- I right click and do Edit In -> Edit In Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1
- In Photoshop, the photo opens upside down and I have to rotate the image 180 degrees, to get it right.

The problem exists in Lightroom < 3.3, 3.4, 3.4.1 but also in 3.5 RC.
A video (sorry for the grey scrambled first seconds) from the february situation of 3.3 is here:
