Need more proof?
Panda home does that, like in that guy's video. The stock 2.0 does not, and NEVER DID do that.
Pull out your keyboard and wait for device to orientate itself into landscape mode.
Close it quickly......notice there is a slight lag before the screen reorientates itself again. Thats when the pic was taken. It's a "fake"
Lets put this issue to rest. This has already been addressed on Motorolas Support forum and an employee of Moto confirmed this is not a function of the OS. Never was.....
This thread reminds me of another thread in here where people swear there was no line on the lock screen and a silent update must have went out.

not to mention this Motorola rep has lost his mind as well...

That is a whole lot of people saying the EXACT same thing...
I suppose these DEVELOPERS in the Android Code forum also have no idea what they are talking about... Issue 4712 - android - Droid does not rotate home screen outside of applications - Project Hosting on Google Code
When I bought my Motorola Droid the home screen and contacts list would
automatically rotate when I turned the phone to landscape orientation. Now
it doesn't do that except inside applications.
I have verified that the option is enabled under settings. Turning it
on/off doesn't fix it. Factory reset doesn't fix it. Rebooting the phone
and taking out the battery doesn't resolve the issue either.
It happened after I filled up my home screen with shortcuts. It worked
fine for 2 days (starting the 9th and ending the 11th) and the it stopped
functioning. Many others have this problem and there is a incorrectly
categorized issue about it (category: enhancement).
Issue 4555 - android - android 2.0 home screen wont rotate with keyboard closed except when in car mode - Project Hosting on Google Code
This is a bug, not an enhancement request
I also am having the same issue, my home screen would rotate automaticaly when I
bought the phone, but stopped after about an hour.
I am having the same issue. I noticed it 2 days ago and not sure why the screen does
not rotate anymore?
Mine also stopped doing this after a day or so.
Same here. I'm going to return my phone if they don't come up with a fix soon
Same thing with my phone , motorola droid.
Same issue homepage auto rotated fine for 1 or 2 days but doesn't work any longer, most
likely after adding a few shortcuts
I'm sorry but "My phone never did that" doesn't exactly invalidate the concern of a bunch of individuals working with the code of Android...
