I've had this problem; it's not that rare at all. It depends on the type of
object you're dealing with. I've always been able to solve the problem by
ungrouping the objects in the illustration and then grouping them again.
Then rotation works fine.

My words are my own. Confuse them with my employer's at your own risk.
