Description

I came across this by chance, and after some figuring have found it reproducible.

Problem: Under certain conditions, you can decouple a craft inside a fairing, and it can fly through the still-closed fairing. One would not expect this to happen.

Reproduce:
  1. Create the craft shown, or any simple propulsive craft.
  2. Place decoupler under engine, it can be on its own stage or that of the engine.
  3. Place fairing base under decoupler, build fairing around craft and close the fairing around the craft itself.
  4. Launch craft. Decouple craft without deploying fairing. You can now throttle up and fly through the fairing that visually should be confining the ship.

This bug will not happen if you close the fairing normally on itself; you cannot fly though the fairing.
