Wrong Znormal translate using bpy.ops.transform.translate
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Blender Version
Broken: 2.76.2 f337fea

Short description of error
When I try to move some faces of a mesh along Z normal axis using "bpy.ops.transform.translate(value=(0, 0, 10), constraint_axis=(False, False, True), constraint_orientation='NORMAL')" give a wrong result.
As show in the image, it doesn't work as expected (Icosphere.001 is edited by modeling by hand with same Z distance)

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Please always test with the latest release, this is working in 2.77.

where can i find 2.77?

I've tested until 2.76 8c84a18, latest at

As sorry, my mistake (2.76 is latest release). I'll check on this - we had another bug regarding normal transform from Python reported recently and a fix was committed.

do you mean this ?

Always me :P

Anyway, thank you for your support!
