bug #55217: --align not working as expected in left-hand oriented WCS

When the input WCS dataset is left-hand oriented (East is to the left of North, what ever direction North has), then the `--align' operator doesn't work as expected.

This problem can be reproduced with a simple mock image:

$ echo "0 25 25 1 2 1 45 0.5 1 5"                    \
       | astmkprof --oversample=1 --mergedsize=49,49 \
$ astwarp in.fits --flip=0,1 --rotate=20
$ astwarp in_warped.fits --align

The output `in_warped_aligned.fits' will not be aligned with the standard RA/Dec directions (North to the top and East to the left).

However, apparently no information is lost, because after opening `in.fits' and `in_warped_aligned.fits' in ds9 and matching them by their WCS, things seem reasonable. So --align is apparently just failing in finding the wrong rotation, it doesn't look like a lower-level problem (in mixing pixels for example).
