Using the operator properties panel in the 3d view to modified the opetaion shears the 3d object, it seems to happens with other transformations too(translate, rotate, scale).

However using F6 (last operator) menu at the uv/img editor works fine

Thanks for the report, but this is a limitation of re-do system, combined with context-based operators. Basically, when you tweak values in redo panel the operator gets re-run in the new context.

There is no easy way to change design to make it more predictable.

Also, we would need to revisit some aspects of the undo/redo system for workspaces in Blender2.8. So stay tuned for that!
