   Suggestion: Rather than perform each new rotation on the graphic's current 
set of points, why not keep a running total of the accumulated angle, and 
rotate the *original* set of points *every time*? If you rotate the current 
set of points, you run the risk of accumulating roundoff error and such; if 
you always rotate the original set of points, you never have more than one 
rotation's-worth of error to worry about.
   Hope this helps...
