Please, if you ask a question, be a little bit more explicit than 'unexpected behaviour'. Maybe you're confused in the use of x and y. The command is arctan2( <y>, <x> ), so note to fill in coordinates in the reverse order.

arctan2(2, 1) gives 63.43° witch is the angle between xAxis, origin and (1, 2) and not (2, 1).

If what you mean by unexpected behaviour is something different, please explain
