I discovered a bug with the auto-pst-pdf package, but don't know where to report it.

The bug manifests itself both with pdflatex and the dvi->ps->pdf chain. Here is a minimal working example:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{auto-pst-pdf}
\usepackage{pst-3dplot}
\usepackage{rotating}
\begin{document}
\rotatebox{90}{$AAA$}
\end{document}

The example fails to compile, when it should. The error message is:

pdfTeX error (\pdfsetmatrix): Unrecognized format. \end{document}

I believe that the bug requires all 3 packages. I am using Ubuntu 13.10 with up-to-date texlive package installed.

So what is the bug? –  Werner Nov 3 '13 at 16:35
    
The file doesn't compile when it should. Edited the post to answer your question. –  user39417 Nov 3 '13 at 16:44
    
I don't believe it requires rotating. Just a document with some text seem to replicate the problem. To that end, it may be a bug with the PStricks-side only. Bugs can be reported by sending an email to the PStricks mailing list (pstricks@tug.org). –  Werner Nov 3 '13 at 16:55

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
%\usepackage{auto-pst-pdf}
\usepackage{pst-3dplot}
\usepackage{rotating}
\begin{document}
\rotatebox{90}{$AAA$}
\end{document}

produces no error with latex-dvips-ps2pdf sequence.

use

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{auto-pst-pdf}
\usepackage{pst-3dplot}
\usepackage{rotating}
\begin{document}
\begin{postscript}
\rotatebox{90}{$AAA$}
\end{postscript}
\end{document}

or alternatively:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{auto-pst-pdf}
\ifpdf\else
  \usepackage{pst-3dplot}
\fi
\usepackage{rotating}
\begin{document}
\rotatebox{90}{$AAA$}
\end{document}
