Is the launcher not optimized for the Nexus 7?

Same thing happens on my N7 (2013) and N10 (and would probably happen on my N5 if I enabled auto-rotate on the homescreen). I think because it was originally only available on the N5, it's only really optimized to handle one orientation on the homescreen, since the N5 is a phone and isn't allowed (by default anyways) to auto-rotate the launcher. I just set the wallpaper in orientation I primarily use for each device (Portrait for my N5 & N7 (2013), and Landscape for my N10).
Bottom line, the GNL still appears to be buggy when it comes to this. Although I can live with it, I still would love for them to fix this issue to center the wallpaper on both orientations.
