Photoshop CC: Sudden picture tilt

I use the latest update of the fantastic program Photoshop CC on normal Windows 7 64 bit home setup with normal configurations, but ever since I started using it, last month, at some point when I am working on a picture, the whole canvas tilts, about 15-20 degrees anticlockwise. This unwanted 'action' is not registered in the history, and there is no way of making it undone other than close the file, save and re-open it. Luckily it then appearts un-tilted, but as everyone can imagine, it is very annoying with such unexpected interruptions, some times several times during a session with one picture. It is taking the fun out of the work with an expensive graphic tool, and I really wish someone has the solution.

Are you seeing a compass when the image rotates? Hit Esc to reset the canvas rotation.

Otherwise, go into Preferences>Interface... and disable "Enable Gestures" to turn off that feature.

Hi Palle, I'm having the exact same issue - can you tell me how you fixed it? I use a Wacom pen/tablet as my moujse too.
