Anyone still use threaded headsets?Kami

Here's my pickle. I'm fixing up my old roadbike to use on my VR trainer (got sick of swapping tires every time I wanted to ride) and had my LBS throw in a new headset. This was a couple weeks ago. I finally got the rest of the bike put together and realized that the stem is off by about 20 degrees. However, when I loosen the bolt and try to turn the stem, it will not turn. It appears to be seized, even though it was installed only a couple weeks back and never used.
Can anyone give me any tips to straighten out this stem?

Thanks guys...
tap the bolt lightly with a hammer nmgtx
