[osg-users] osgText::Text rotation

I'm new to OSG, but not so new to scene graphs in general.
I'm trying to make some changes to osgGIS to suit my needs. I wish to
change the BuildLabelsFilter to rotate labels so that they face away
from the terrain. Here is a short piece of code to show what I've done
osg::Vec3d up( input->getExtent().getSRS()->getUpVector(point) );
rotation.makeRotate( up, osg::Vec3d(0, 0, 1) );
// build the drawable:
osgText::Text* t = new osgText::Text();
t->setAutoRotateToScreen( false );
t->setCharacterSizeMode( osgText::Text::SCREEN_COORDS );
t->setAlignment( osgText::Text::CENTER_CENTER );
t->setText( text.c_str() );
t->setColor( color );
t->setCharacterSize( (float)font_size );
t->setPosition( point );
t->setBackdropType( osgText::Text::OUTLINE );
t->setBackdropColor( osg::Vec4(0,0,0,1) );
But the results are not correct (see screenshot).
If I add a line from point to (point + rotation*Vec3d(0, 0, 1)), the
line gets rotated correctly and coincides with the up vector.
I also tried using
but in this case the text completely disappears.
If I change rotation.makeRotate( up, osg::Vec3d(0, 0, 1) ); to
rotation.makeRotate( 0.0, osg::X_AXIS, osg::inDegrees(80.0),
osg::Y_AXIS, 0.0, osg::Z_AXIS );
It looks like the text are rotated by 80 degrees around the Y axes and
then projected onto the XY plane?
Rotating around the Z axis seems to be working fine
I looked at the osgtext example and the setAxisAlignment() works as expected.
Am I understanding the use of osgText::Text::rotate() incorrectly, or
is there something else I'm doing wrong?
I'm using OSG 2.8.0 and OSGGIS from the svn repository - last updated
to rev 179.
