Kobo Touch:PDF rotated-zoom handling

I got my Kobo Touch yesterday as my first ebook reader. It's been a reasonably positive experience, but I'd like to check if others have had the same experience as I have when reading PDFs.

I have some PDFs with diagrams in them so I use the rotate function. There's a button that's supposed to fit the PDF page onto the width of the screen, but I find that when rotated, the fit-to-width button zooms in at least 25% passed the width of the screen.

I'm wondering if maybe the PDF files that I have aren't formatted the right way, and maybe that's what is causing the problems.

I've only tried with one PDF to date and fit to width worked great with it; I'll check with a couple more pdf's tomorow and report back.

Okay, I just finished updating my firmware. All my PDFs work great now except that the zooming in landscape mode doesn't return back to the top of the next page like it does in portrait mode.
