Your matrices you using to assemble the bones need to be converted too.

The simplest way to deal with this is to put a rotation transform at
the root of the scenegraph and attach your nodes to it instead of the
root. That will effectively change the coordinate system from the OSG
z-up to your y-up and you keep working in your y-up coordinates. If
you start converting the coordinate systems vector by vector then you
will have to change all the matrices too - fairly error prone if you
have a larger codebase.
