You have to turn off "Enable auto movement assist" in the options, in the "Combat Options" tab.
It's a known issue from Update 5, and listed in the official bug report, so there is no need to /bug it.
Three fighters for the Free People under the sky
Six less frequently used, on their benches of stone
Nine they are in total, doomed to guild crafting
One will never move from the oven, 'cause I can't play Burglar
It's a new bug introduced in the last update, you have to switch off "Movement Assist in Combat" in the Combat section of the UI. This bug effects melee as well since it makes all attckers immediately run to the centre of their target and generates the "You must face target" message since you always run past what you are aiming at.
A total pain in the *ss, for every class but especially for ranged/spell casters. There have been a number of threads complaining, especially by disabled players who are affected really badly, but Turbine still haven't said anything about fixing it.
