Bug report #6200
Label direction does not take scale-dependent average to determin line orientation

This is a simple problem.
The new label interface in QGIS 1.9.0 is excellent and dynamic labelling capabilities impressive.
However, label orientation is not good for wiggly lines like rivers.
When zoomed out, the labels rarely follow the large-scale direction of the river.
Instead, the orientation seems to follow individual (small scale) segments, which leads to labels being 90 degrees rotated from their ideal alignment.
See images and sample river label project (attached).
Perhaps solution could build on this bug fix: https://issues.qgis.org/projects/quantum-gis/repository/revisions/b77d606744ec3721ba15366ff754fcbce0a265d7 .
