how did you select the text. Was it by double-clicking on the text?

selecting text in rotated documents should not be possible. It is not implemented in evince yet. There is an upstream bug https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=583552 for this.
I filled a bug for disabling the incorrect selection (bug #592963).
I'm changing version of this bug to RHEL 6.1.
