Bug#659772: landscape sciposter + hyperref + latex + dvips = center-mirrored image

Could be that I should either try to detect the usage of hyperref, or add a "hyperref option to sciposter.cls

This mail was not sent to all involved, so here a repeat:

This all chimes with my hunch that the postscript "specials" in the sciposter.cls code (inherited from a4poster) might be the problem. I have been working on a version 2.0 of sciposter.cls, and someone kindly sent me code replacing the page-setup code of sciposter with the calls to the geometry package. I will test if that solves the problem. As my personal beta version has been tested by quite a few and seems rock solid in other respects, I shall try to get a release version with manual ready. As I am overwhelmed by last minute exam stuff at work, I do not know whether I can do this before the summer vacation (starting July 21 for us).

In other words, this is neither a bug in one of the involved packages,
nor in dvips.  However, I fancy, it could be worked around if sciposter
had some code for interaction with hyperref?

Is this true?
