Description

When dragging the mouse in map view with intent to reorient the camera, it's possible to unintentionally switch to another vessel when the mouse button is released. This is especially problematic when performing test launches of prototype spacecraft where reverting to hangar was the player's intent at the time of launch or when the player is nearing a maneuver node and is suddenly presented with an unexpected craft to control.

Suggested fix: Include a vessel switching confirmation dialogue and do not force the mouse cursor to move when the dialogue appears, but do pause gameplay and set the dialogue as a foreground item which prohibits interaction with all other game assets until it is reveiwed by the player. Also include a user-enabled option to revert to current mechanics where no confirmation to switch vessels is required.
