Summary0000227: Work direction of locking catch block incorrect when connecting subparts of two opposite ones

When two locking catch blocks with opposite orientations are sharing the subpart, the locking direction of one of them gets inverted, so it is the opposite to the graphic appearance. In consequence both opposite catch blocks lock just one direction of the rotation.

Steps To Reproduce

Place two locking catch blocks with opposite orintation and connect their subparts.
Lock both catch blocks.
Try to rotate the subpart (for example using the crank).

After more testing: The locking direction always switches to incorrect (contrary to ratchet direction) whenever its subpart is not the origin (the first block placed) of the subgrid. This does depend on neither the subgrid origin orientation nor the locking catch subpart orientation. Thus, it is not a matter of block vs grid frame of reference conversion. Whenever the subpart has to connect to the existing subgrid, the ratched working direction flips to wrong. Tested with the origin being the subpart of both locking and standard (extended) catch blocks.

Also, connecting two catches oriented the same way allows to lock both directions as the one placed as second flips to wrong ratchet direction (as in the note above).
