Default RandR rotation fails with recent X-servers

Attempts to rotate the display to the left or right with nvidia-settings or /usr/bin/xrandr fail with a BadValue error:
$ xrandr -o left
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  154 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  2 (RRSetScreenConfig)
  Value in failed request:  0x780
  Serial number of failed request:  14
  Current serial number in output stream:  14
Inverting works. (xrandr -o inverted)

It seems that this xorg commit from December causes the problem with nvidia drivers. For that reason it was reverted, but only on the 1.7 branch. Unfortunately, my distribution tracks the 1.9-branch of xorg-xserver.

Should that commit be reverted in all xserver branches, or is it the nvidia driver that needs fixing?

Interestingly, someone claimed on the debian bug report that gnome-display-properties succeeds where nvidia-settings and xrandr crash.

P.S. According to this FAQ page, bug reports can be emailed to Is that still true?
