Question about the escape pod

Hello,
I have not played the original Elite, I started with Elite: Dangerous and Alite seemed like the best adaptation for me, so this may be ignorance talking but what is the expected behavior of the escape pod? I accidentally hit the button while not in a combat situation and the results surprised me. The view went out the a 3rd person view, I saw the escape pod leave my Cobra and saw my Cobra continue to fly off into the distance, then nothing, just that same view with my Cobra slowly vanishing from view. This state went on for several minutes with no option to get back to gameplay. Every time I exited the game or even forced it to close it always opened back up to that starfield screen with no interactables. I was eventually able to load a save game when I went and renamed the current_state.dat to current_state.dat.old to force the game to generate that file again.
Is there something that I missed or a better way to do that, or was I just too impatient? :)

Bug

Nope, that sounds like a bug. You should be brought back to the 'Status Screen' after you have seen the Cobra disappear in the distance. This shouldn't take longer than a couple of seconds.

This bug has been reported a couple of times but I have not been able to reproduce it.
Would you mind sending me your savegames? I'll try to fix the bug then...

Cheers!

I ended up sending you a zip file with some of that information to your e-mail address, as I couldn't find a way to send it to you through the forums here. Thanks!
