Have a look at the tool options. Probably the "corrective" option is set
which makes the transform tools doing the opposite. This is very useful
for e.g. correcting the rotational tilt of scans, it is probably less
useful for scaling.
At some point the setting was activated and got stored in your personal
preferences. You can hit the "reset" button at the bottom of the tool
options dialog to reset them to the default.
I hope this helps,
