Re: rotated photos aren't saved

I looked at the exif data after rotating a photo and it did change to
reflect the rotation.  Apparently gthumb and eog do not respect this
exif setting which is unfortunate.  However, you said that Flickr did.
 So why don't the images show up on flickr rotated when I send export
them and don't strip metadata?

Also, what does it meant to rotate a coefficient when exporting? 
Sorry if that's a stupid question.
