Cannot use WASD and mouse look at the same time

We kindly ask that you complete the questions below. With this information, we can add it to our database for investigation.

If I don’t move, I have full use of mouse look. Once I start moving with “W” the look is frozen until I stop pushing “W” then I have full use of mouse look again. I can’t do both at the same time.

Steps to Reproduce:
[Please add the steps that can help our QA department in reproducing the issue. For example:]

Just start the game in the intro when I was in the practice tunnel. Use WASD keys and try to turn using the mouse. Once I start moving with WASD, I can’t mouse look until I stop moving. They I regain mouse look.

I bought this game today. Today Steam completely revamped their native controller support. I play with a controller in my left hand and a mouse in my right. I normally deactivate my controller support in Steam and use a utility called ReWASD to remap my controller to KB keys including WASD. This change in steam messed that up.
