Bug Description

When I try to place any text on a layer in pcbnew, rotating the text before it is actually placed on the canvas fails:
1) I select the text tool
2) I enter the text and confirm with OK
3) I can see the text under my mouse cursor and can move it around before confirming location
4) I press "r" to rotate... Result: The text disappears and the text tool is disengaged. There is no text on the canvas. Clicking on any spot does not place any text under the mouse cursor.

What is also peculiar is that when I make a second try and perform steps 1) and 2), the text under the mouse is invisible. The text tool remains engaged, I can move the mouse and click on the canvas for placement, and the text appears - but before placement what I wrote is invisible.

Additional information:
- I can place a text with normal orientation without it disappearing or being invisible. Once the text is on the canvas, I am able to select it and rotate it with "r" without problems.
- My rotation step setting is configured for 45 degree steps.
