Record nodes are drawn differently in dot and neato when rankdir=LR.

It's true. dot -Grankdir=LR rotates record nodes so that their top level fields are still listed across levels. rankdir=LR has no effect in neato. One workaround is HTML-like records (they don't rotate; the downside is that you have to write in XML). Another workaround is to enclose record labels in { } to rotate/unrotate the record contents.
