I've also noticed this occasionally during some large "undo" operations.

After rotating, once, or, twice, a section of a PCB with, say, 100-200
components, after a large "undo", around 5-15 of the components wouldn't
un-rotate properly, or completely.

Weird, Hun?

Since then it has been MUCH better behaved.
