Short description of error
There seems to be a bug where it either uses the wrong keys on my QWERTZ keyboard, or the highlighted directional lines are bugged.
I wanted to scale a mesh and pressed S and then Shift + Y so that I can edit everything but the Y axis. It did scale the Y axis and did not scale the Z axis.
Same thing with the Z axis. S, Shift + Z scales the Z and X axis, but not the Y axis.
Same applies to mesh moving (G).
Both apply to the object mode as well as edit mode.
I checked my Computers Region and language settings. There is no entry for a keyboard other than my QWERTZ keyboard with german layout. So I can not switch with any key combination to a different keyboard language.
I have worked with the same blender version on my Laptop as well and I didn't get the same bug there yet.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
It seems to be random to me, so there is no step-by-step way that I could tell or any bugged blender file I could upload.
In one moment it works. The next edit step has the wrong keyboard. After a few minutes, after I adjusted the usage to the wrong button use, it switches again. There is nothing I can think of that could cause that. The weird thing is that I didn't restart blender in the mean time.

I have installed the screencast script and will look out what blender says about the used button when the bug reoccurs.
