Thank you both,

Possibly a factor, although I'm fairly certain that I invisibly subscribed to
that June 2022 issue long, long before my 31st July 2023 comment there. 


I wish I had kept a private note of when this bug 273264 became noticeable. 

It's _possible_ that I noticed it, but ignored it, around the time that Display
Configuration gained a new feature: 

* the 'Keep display configuration' dialogue, which, if ignored, allows 
  settings to revert after a timeout. 

Whenever that was.

(Readers might recall that previous to this new feature, if you virtually
rotated the display 90° the wrong way, you'd give yourself an upside-down
situation that was amusingly difficult to recover from with a pointing device.
That type of thing.)

In any case: 

* when the Keep button is pressed, what file is written? 

A Plasma-specific file? Or, maybe something X-related that's theoretically
usable by some other desktop environment or window manager?
