Hotkey and gnomon rotate and scale stop working, though translate works fine

Hi Folks,

You know how you press ‘R’/‘S’ hotkeys then move your mouse, it rotates/scales the selected object?

And when you grab a gnomon rotate / scale handle or circle, it also does the same?

Well in some files I have worked on, this suddenly stops working, altho ‘G’ / gnomon arrow handles to grab/move still do work when the above do not. It tends to happen on more complex files. The only way to rotate or scale at these times is to use numeric entry (no the transform locks are not engaged, there are no locks or constrains). Is this a bug or is there some logical reason?

Thanks.
