Scale Tool windows defaults to random percents when real-time drawings is enabled.
To recreate is problem: First enable Real-time drawing. Then draw a box. With the Scale Tool window open, uniform scale the box 400%. Duplicate that box by holding down OPTION key while click and dragging the box. Click on the second box and open the Scale Tool window: when I do this I no longer see 400% in the scale percentage, instead I find completely random numbers and sometimes it selects non-uniform. This gets annoying after a while.
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 25.1 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!
Sorry about the false Christmas present, I must have just had a lucky run. I'm back to -3.3804057273% instead of 90%....
Seems to be fixed...
Sort it out please, been going on for a while and as stated below "often tells me I can't apply the transform as the object would fall off the artboard" just to compound the irritation.
Cn also confirm. This is still happening in the latest illustrator release.
Count me in! Any object when using scale tool - seems to remember a previous transform (move, rotate etc) and applies that as well as adding in random scale percentages, often non-uniform. Quite often tells me I can't apply the transform as the object would fall off the artboard.
Can also confirm. This is driving me absolutely insane.
