Just my $0.02:
The issue is quite unpredictable in my case. Oftentimes, when the app is started in portrait (and we send our acceptable directions to landscape quite early, when only our splash screen is showing, way before the main screen is pushed) it will stay in portrait for some long time, then suddenly snap into landscape. Other times it will start correctly in landscape despite being started in portrait.
The phone I'm personally testing with (I know other people in our company have seen the same on other phones, but will speak for myself):
BlackBerry (R) 9550 (3G, CDMA, Wi-Fi)
v188.8.131.523 (Bundle 1206, Platform 184.108.40.2063)
Verizon, non-activated (this is our test phone, used only to test our application through Wi-Fi)
My experience with Torch is much more limited, but I've never seen this problem there.
