Crop Tool Stuck?

My crop tool is funky.
When I try to crop something, it is as if someone or thing is holding down ths shift key (to constrain proportions)
So I can never get a crop that works more like the transform tool?

    look at the top of the menu and see if WIDTH & HEIGHT are filled in..  delete the entries and you can once again resize at will.

    When I try to put a 0 in there or leave blank, I get a message that says  " a value between 0.014 and 4166 is required.

    Then it defaults to 0.0114

    And then it still does the same thing it doesnt have the trans form handles.
    Its has the handles as if you were holding the shift to constrain proportions.
