images pixelated when rotated

When I place an image into InDesign it imports high res, but when the image is rotated, it becomes severely pixelated. Even when the image rotation is a small degree - just a few degrees even. The image preview becomes distorted severly and changes distortion with every degree of rotation. I should mention that I am a professional graphic designer with over 20 years of experience so I have tried all of the obvious fixes - switched view to "overprint preview", set display performance to "High Quality", deleted preferences.. I have done everything imaginable. Running a machine with 3 GB of RAM so should be fine there... contacted Adobe Customer Support and he could not resolve the issue. Says that he tried it on his end (also with high res images) and he is experiencing the same issue. Said that it is to be expected from the software. We aren't talking about a mild amount of pixelation or distortion here. As soon as you rotate, it gets REAL ugly REAL quick lol. I just refuse to believe that InDesign is that poor at image previewing. There has to be another solution to this. Example shown here is a scanned image, 720ppi - look at the lines under the logo at the top. And this is a flattened JPEG. HELP!!!! I can't be the only one experiencing this.
