ps2pdf13 is a script that runs ghostscript. It might be better to add a -dPDFSETTINGS= option to optimize for screen, ebook, printer or prepress output.
If you do not specify the PDFSETTINGS, the default sets AutoRotatePages to /PageByPage, which might explain why it rotated some pages.
The table of PDFSETTINGS options is at http://ghostscript.com/doc/current/Ps2pdf.htm or you can use scripts at http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Reduce_the_size_of_Scribus_generated_PDFs and http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Web_optimised_PDF
