Bug Description

See attached screenshot, tapping twice on the password entry shows the text overlay, but it's in hardware orientation, not the real one.

It's been fixed for dialogs, but we must've missed popovers somehow.

Unfortunately this is too deeply entrenched in Ubuntu.Components internals, unlike Dialog.

I can reproduce this on M10 running rc-proposed. It displays the same regardless if I had the tablet in portrait or landscape before screen locked.

On the side of UI Toolkit this is implemented via the new MainWindow.visualRoot property. Once Unity switches to that the problem should be gone.

---------------
ubuntu-ui-toolkit (1.3.2166+17.04.20170130) zesty; urgency=medium

  [ Andrea Bernabei ]
  * ListItemLayout documentation: fix typo in color usage of a code example.
    Fixes LP: #1561861

  [ Zsombor Egri ]
  * Get tst_listitem_focus_13 back alive. Fixes LP: #1624331.

  [ Arthur Mello ]
  * Add support for interacting with Content Hub Clipboard UI via DBus calls.
    Fixes LP: #1563440.

  [ Daniel d'Andrada ]
  * If GRID_UNIT_PX set, always use it. It should override scaling information
    from the QPA.

  [ Adnane Belmadiaf ]
  * Expose append method in TextArea. Fixes LP: #1658121.

  [ Tim Peeters ]
  * Toolbar visual refresh to scroll the icons instead of using an overflow
    panel. Fixes LP: #1558018.
  * Add missing dependency for the UITK gallery. Fixes lLP: #1640135

  [ Sergio Cazzolato ]
  * This change is done to remove the dependencies with upstart in the tests.
    To start apps with env vars is gonna be used the launch_test_application
    method provided by autopilot in its test base class which is a wrapper for
    the ubuntu-app-launch tools (API). This change removes all the dependencies
    with upstart, so all the projects which are using the initctl api and
    fixtures will be impacted. An update in the documentation or in the blog is
    gonna be done also to communicate this change to the developers.

  [ Christian Dywan ]
  * Add visualRoot property to MainWindow. Fixes LP: #1504551, LP: #1656857.
  * Add python3-debian to control.gles and harden package-sorting.sh.
  * Add organizationName property to MainWindow
  * Add MainWindow to Ubuntu.Components.Labs.
    Fixes LP: #1573118, LP: #1587431, LP: #1647415

  [ Albert Astals Cid ]
  * Labs is at 1.0.
  * You can't save the focus after the popup/dialog has been created, at that
    stage the dialog has focus already, you need to do it before creating it.
