PCBnew: Sending traces to the other side sometimes rotates the trace

Bug Description

If I have a trace selected and I want to hit 'F' to send it to the other side, PCBnew will sometimes rotate the trace, breaking the circuit and my concentration. Hitting 'F' should simply shift a trace's layer, not alignment.

Well, it IS called flip. Seems like maybe the functionality should be split in to two things:
one to flip a trace
one to send a trace to another layer

The 5.1 Edit Track and Via Properties dialog allows for moving tracks to different layers.
