Easy mistake to make and hard to catch since it rarely ever causes trouble (unless

I believe that's called "portrait mode" and these days it's not so much "weird" as 
just uncommon … except in tablets where people are flipping screens around from portrait to 
landscape and back to portrait again with pretty wild abandon. Probably a good idea for NetBSD to support 
that mode of video operation.

Just FYI, at my work, it's not even uncommon. About half the people are sitting at work stations using 24" monitors sitting in portrait mode.
