Weird rotations

Hi!

I think this is probably a common error since a couple of my friends have experienced this sometimes. For some reason, when I try to animate a simple rotation, the object does a whole bunch of weird turns before getting to the key, I was looking at the IPO curves and the rotations are being made towards the opposite direction of where I want them, or something like that. Can anyone help?

I moved this to the Animation forum, as it deserves to be here for the proper reply.
