Bus Ripper symbols point in the wrong direction + non-orthogonal segments

In the process of moving some stuff around, some nets off of a bus got disconnected.

 

Restoring the connections result in the old style (diamond shaped) bus ripper symbol pointing in the wrong direction. They do re-connect, but it looks stupid.

 

Attempts to flip the symbol only result in other weirdness like stubs extending out in the wrong direction. When I pull the stub back to the net the bus ripper symbol points in the wrong direction again.

 

Not to be deterred, I deleted the nets intending to re-rip them. When I select bus and then "rip nets" I end up with an error message:

 

"Nets can't be ripped from a non-orthogonal segment."

 

I wasn't able to locate a good definition of that statement.

 

Any advice / hints appreciated,

 

Ken
