Are you setting gsnMaximize to True? If so, it will redetermine the
orientation based on the shape of your plot. If the plot is wider
than it is high, then it will go into portrait mode. NCL has no way of
knowing when you've explicitly set resources in a resource file, and
so gsnMaxmize will go ahead and recalculate the orientation.
