Since the last or the update before, photoshop just adds automatically rounded corners to my (path)rectangles, which is pretty annoying because I've to reset them to zero every time i draw a rectangle.

Thanks you in advance for you help.

They set it up that way so that professionals could easily set any default they want for the corner radius of the Rectangle tool. For example, if you are creating web buttons for a project and need all of their corners to be 6px radius, you can set the default in the options bar and you will be all set drawing 6px radius corners by default.
