I'm having a problem with the 3D manipulator in Blender when I look at an object from the top view (Numpad 7).

The 3D manipulator is not following the rotation of the object, instead the red and green arrows are going diagonally.

Please see attached picture. Can I change it so that arrows match the object's rotation?
