Seems to be a problem one way only. If you lock proportions, and enter a figure and press enter, works fine. While you still have AI Open, if you open a new file or existing file, still works fine (proportion still locked, so it is not file specific). If you "exit" / "close" Illustrator, and open AI, either from a file directly or Creative Cloud, it show unlocked, but it is not. You have to click twice on the icon to reset it to unlocked. Ugh.
