Occasionally, I will press Ctrl-x and Ctrl-a to increment/decrement the highlighted number, and the opposite operation will happen.

This usually happens when I'm working with with registers (q). Could I possibly be setting up some sort of alias between the two commands? How do I fix it besides opening/closing vim?


Nevermind, the number I was incrementing was in a date time (like 2015-08-07) and I think vim was interpreting it as a negative integer.
