When you have cropped an area changing the image orientation (e.g. a landscape crop out of a portrait picture) and you set a new crop ratio in library module (quick develop) afterwards, the picture orientation is changed.
This is very annoying when you first choose a crop for every picture and finally have to export in different aspect ratios!
