Can't set up taper in ortho mode one

OMG, this has been driving me nuts till I figure out what was really going on. I can’t do this simple thing in ortho mode one using blender 2.71.

create path
create circle and set it as the bevel
create path and use it for taper

It works in the other ortho modes and when not in ortho mode. Is this a bug?

To use it in the X Z axis view you would need to give your taper object a 90 degree x axis rotation

thanks, played with it and found if I wanted to, lets say edit your vase standing up, I would have to grab Y axis and so that way. Counterintuitive for me, but I’m a noob.
