Illustrator can't draw a straight line anymore?!!!

I have an illustrator problem, it can't draw a straight line.
It's wonky and slopes about 1.32#~º tilt to the left.
I was running CC2019 and yet even after running the 2020 update... IT STILL DOESN'T WORK?!!!
Can anyone please tell me, What kind of ludicrous preference has been added now that I have to find and turn off this time?
It's really doing my head in. I don't know any self-respecting, control-freak, GD that would want to default to CROOKED lines and boxes of 1.32~º. This is NOT a feature, to quote Neil Tennant (PSB), 'It's a SIN!'
Does anyone else currently have this problem?
My greatest thanks in advance!

In Preferences>General, what's the setting for Constrain Angle? It should be set to 0.
