The directions on the compass I am using are currently reversed. I recently replaced a damaged compass with a pristine one. The damaged compass pointed in the correct directions, however the pristine compass identifies south as north, east as west, etc. This occurred during the same session of play. (uninterrupted connection to same server throughout)
Screenshot of issue included. Character is facing south (sun visible in south-east as server time is about 9-10am), however the compass identifies the faced direction as being north.
