Description

using a radial docking port to control a craft using "control from here", see screeny, targeting a second docking port on a different craft/part and using SAS "align to target" command function, the alignment of the craft using SAS is deflected downwards some 30° off the target.

I have seen this a few times now.

If you use an inline docking port with axial orientation such as the one at the top of this craft in the screeny, the alignment is fine.

To explain the screeny the craft in the foreground has a pod attached and is trying to attach a second pod to the other side of it where there is a symmetrical docking port which is being used to control the craft. If you look at the SAS function which is green it is the orient to target function but the craft is static (see pitch and yaw indicators) and pointing well off the target which is visible on the navball as well as in the screen.

I posted about this in Technical Support October 28 last year. http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/151030-docking-summersaults/#comment-2827866
In November I reported a game breaking bug http://bugs.kerbalspaceprogram.com/issues/13314 which has also been pretty much ignored.
Good Luck! :)
