Rename your minetest.conf file, and check whether it still happens when starting Minetest using the default settings.

You always have a bit of momentum in fly mode, you don't stop moving instantly when you let go of the movement keys. However I'm not aware that this has changed in Minetest 5.x.

Try pressing "J" to turn fast mode on/off. It's possible that you had it on by accident. Also try "P" to toggle pitch movement mode - this is new in Minetest 5.x and might create a similar feeling to sliding if you aren't expecting it/used to it.

Otherwise my guess would be that a mod is setting a physics override (possibly incorrectly). Does this happen with Minetest Game without any other mods or are you using a different subgame and/or have you installed extra mods?
