Description

1.11: EVA Propellant is supposed to be refilled for free whenever a kerbal returns to a pod. For the resource named "EVA Propellant" this appears to work as intended. However, if another resource is defined as the EVA propellant by modifying propellantResourceName in the KerbalEVA module, it is not refilled upon returning to a pod. Since there is no way to transfer resources to cargo parts (including jetpacks), this leaves no way to refill non-default EVA propellants.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Change the value of propellantResourceName in the KerbalEVA module in kerbalEVA.cfg and/or kerbalEVAfemale.cfg from "EVA Propellant" to another defined resource (e.g. I used Nitrogen with CRP installed.)
2) Change the name of the resource stored in the EVA jetpack and/or EVA fuel cylinder parts to the same resource used in the previous step.
3) Take a kerbal on EVA and use the jetpack, depleting some of the propellant.
4) Return the EVA kerbal to the vessel and observe the the propellant is not replenished.

Alternatively, a way to transfer resources to or from parts in cargo would be nice.

Something not right there thats for sure, changing the jetpacks fuel was definitely something in scope
