S2 IS CHDK text reflection when moving LCD monitor

Today I noticed a strange thing.
When I open the LCD monitor (I prefer using viewfinder) - in some positions the CHDK appears as a mirror image.
If you take a look at photo included below (sorry for quality) You will see what I mean.
Canon icons are shown in the right way, but CHDK is not (on the left and mirrored).

Yeah, I already noticed about.
There is the option in Canon menu - "Reverse Disp.". Try switching it off. :)

Well, that's half a solution really, but it may be the only one.  Canon has the feature so you can take pictures in reverse easily (as if looking in a mirror), but it leaves the on-screen text unreversed.  The CHDK text gets reversed along with the image, I doubt the option would be available to haev it unreversed (but I could be wrong, lots of 'impossible' things have been done already).

As for me, actually, I do not use this option at all. It's useless for me.  And even Canon firmware has a restrictions in the "Reverse" mode, i.e. does not show focusing rectangle.
But I agree that CHDK could monitor this option an LCD position (already does) to reverse drawing.

You're right in it's limitations.  I typically have it on by default but rarely use it.
