Bug Description

I have two monitors:
1: Primary "main" monitor, landscape orientation.
2: Secondary monitor, "portrait left" rotation (so long axis of monitor is vertical).

I have happily configured monitors for desktop display.

However at login time, the list of users to log in to the computer is on the secondary monitor and is also landscape oriented. Now because this monitor is rotated left 90 degrees in real life, the login window is also rotated. Have to tilt your head 90 degrees left to read it. Login window seems not to be picking up the display configuration - just assumes both monitors are landscape orientation and does not send login options to primary monitor.
