Do you have an example URL where this happens? I'm not saying I have a fix or anything I'm just interested to see what's going on.
What is being described is exactly what I posted with the image, if you click the thumbnail for full size it's correctly oriented. I don;t know if it's getting resized here but on my test forum it was and it's handled correctly by plupload.
Briefly if you or anyone else does not understand this the file is stored exactly the same if it were film camera. If you turn the camera upside down with a film camera your negative is upside down on the negative roll, the same thing occurs here with the digital image. The difference being in the EXIF is setting for orientation or which end is "up". The browser or whatever software that supports it can orient the image correctly....
When you are manipulating the image such as resizing it you need to either preserve the original EXIF data or rotate it correctly based on the EXIF data, Pluplaod is doing one of these two things. The server side thumbnail on the other hand is not handled correctly, the EXIF is stripped during resizing leaving you with sideways image.
