The keep text upright feature works poorly with left- or right-justified text (it flips around the anchor point).
I've had a problem with the keep upright feature since it was introduced. It
has been causing me more problems than it is supposed to solve. I have a
custom patch in my copy of the source tree that disables the feature.
The problem with keep upright is that it doesn't know which board edges are
the "up" side. For one of my PCB's it is using the wrong edges for "up".
