In Photoshop, when I change the angle of a bevel on a shape, it changes the angle of other shapes in completely different layers. For example, I tried to change the angle of a bevel to 90 degrees, and it changed the angle of a drop-shadow on a rectangle on a different layer from 0 degrees to 90 degrees. I have tried rebooting and restarting Photoshop. Nothing works. This is a major bug that must be fixed now! This is a simple action and we should be allowed to have different angles of shadows etc for shapes in photoshop.

Yes, because you have the "use global light" option set so that you keep your light source consistent among all the effects and layers.
If you don't want it consistent, then turn off the "use global light" checkbox for that style.
