Summary0002351: Light entity wireframes not updated, don't reflect actual entity, after rotation
DescriptionCan be a very complex problem when trying to edit, but pretty easy to reproduce.

In a simple mostly dark square room:
-Place a small rectangular ambientlightnfo ambient light. Intersect with floor so you can see the rectangular shape and orientation.
-Check it out in TDM. Turn on DR render mode. All is well.
-Back in DR, hit the button to rotate it 90 degrees Z.
-In the cam view, the light has updated to rotate 90 deg, but the wireframe is still the original shape. The same is seen in the ortho view.

That's the problem, and it really starts to get weird when you try working with it from here forward. If you try to resize the light in one direction, you have to move the mouse perpendicular to the desired movement, and in the opposite direction (so left-right becomes up-down and increase-decrease are swapped). It gets worse if you rotate more, or at a non-90 degree angle. It'll make your head spin.

I suspect it might be a simple math issue or oversight, and if this can be fixed it'll make working with lights much more hardy and simple.

Confirmed. The wireframe rendering of the light doesn't match the transformation matrix in the "rotation" spawnarg.
