Ok I will try to explain this bug. I have posted it before. Actually I have 2. One and I guess the easiest to explain is a movment glitch. When I drag a object on one axis say left or right the object tends to move up a little getting all out of line. This is even if I have only the axis selected I want to use. The second is, if I have the properties window open, the one with the location, rotation and size, and then I select a object to delete it, it deletes data in the window. I have to close it out to delete the object. For some reason the cursor stays in the window even if I select the object and I know for a fact it is selected. These are minor but they are annoying.

From your description I'm guessing that you're in workspace and not on the model side (let me know if this isn't correct).

I'm not able to duplicate either issue but there are a couple of things that may help narrow down what the problem is.

On the movement issue... try locking the axis that you're not using (the X Y and Z icons in the bottom center toolbar). That will tell you for sure whether just an axis is selected.

When deleting an object. Are you deleting an encapsulated object? Does the info panel go blank or do the values zero out? The panel shows the info for the selected object. If you delete that object the values will go to zero (scale stays at the default of "1.00"). Also, if you have the UV editor open the info panel will zero out and some of the fields will dim, but I've never seen it go blank.

What I don't understand is how your cursor is in the info panel when you delete an object. You're using the Delete icon, yes?
