LaTeX: Figure captions in landscape dvi

I want to include horizontally (landscape) oriented pages in a LaTeX document; to do that I use \usepackage{lscape}. Then:

Some normal text

Some text that should be oriented horizontally. 
A page break automatically gets put in before and after.

Revert back to portrait orientation.

This works fine, except when I include a {figure} environment inside the {landscape} environment: In the resulting .dvi file, the figure is in the correct landscape orientation, but the caption is oriented in portrait mode on the same page, running off the page.

I don’t know how to fix this problem for the .dvi file, but when I run …

dvipdfm file.dvi

… the resulting .pdf has the caption oriented correctly.
