Yes, that is a problem with MetaBall and to a certain
extend MetaTube.

MMB works independantly from the hotkeys, so doing a X
axis constraint with MMB and then pressing X goes into

The name for the Y axis constraint with the hotkey
were switched (global for local and vice versa), I

found that out, so thanks.

In any case, Ckey clears the constraint.
