Text Distortion Problem in PS6

Hi all, wonder if anyone can help with this. I am a fairly experienced Photoshop user, have PS6. I am having a strange problem when I use the rotation tool on any text, as it doesn't just rotate, but also seems to slightly deform and curve the text, which it is not supposed to do.
I'm sure this is some small setting somewhere that I have accidentally changed, but I have no clue where to look, can anyone help?
I have checked the Character & Paragraph palette, it all looks normal.

I write my text, click on the tick to finalise it. Then I go to Edit > Transform > Rotate, and either manually rotate or enter a value in the rotation entry box.
Then again, I tick the box to finalise the rotation.
Now it should just have turned the text, but what happens is that it also looks slightly askew, curved or deformed in the middle.

Would appreciate any help with this!
