Dear all,

I am experiencing some strange behavior in VMD 1.9.1. The rotation
operation around the y and z axes seems to be exchanged. That is,

    rotate z by 45

rotates the scene by 45 degrees around the y axis. The opposite,
exchanging y by z, is also true. Rotations around the x axis seem to
work as expected.

Is this a known bug or am I perhaps misinterpreting something?

All the best,
