Rotating images does no longer work

Bug Description

On importing photos from my Canon Ixus 60 digi cam via the gnome photo import window, the checkbox rotate images does not take an effect.

In Feisty, the images were really rotated by the gnome photo import. Since Gusty, the image rotation does no longer work for me.

1. Take two pictures with a digi cam that supports the image orientation: horizontal and vertical
2. Plug in your digi cam to Gusty
3. Download the images with checked "Save original filename" and "Rotate images"
4. Compare the real resolution of the two pictures, e.g. with identify from imagemagicks: identify *.JPG

The result should be something like this:
IMG_6082.JPG[1] JPEG - 2816x2112 - DirectClass 1.7mb 0.460u 0:02
IMG_6083.JPG[2] JPEG - 2816x2112 - DirectClass 1.4mb

While in Feisty the correct result would be:
IMG_6082.JPG[1] JPEG - 2816x2112 - DirectClass 1.7mb 0.460u 0:02
IMG_6083.JPG[2] JPEG - 2112x2816 - DirectClass 1.4mb

Have you used gThumb Image Viewer for that ?

Yes, I have used gThumb for downloading the images with selected "rotate images" checkbox.

I found out, that physical image rotating via the exif orientation is possible after downloading the images:
1. select the image(s) in gThumb
2. menu -> tools -> rotate images -> apply physical transform
=> physical transformation works

So, the problem is still there: physical transformation does not apply during the photo download with selected "rotate images" checkbox.
