A EVA construction bug that moves the entire craft (pretty severe)
Steam 1.11.1 + DLCs
How to reproduce:
1. Load CraftMoverQS.sfs (which is attached to bug report)
2. Enter EVA construction mode
3. Grab the Small I-Beam
4. Press I to get out of EVA construction
5. Press I again.
6. Grab the Small I-Beam again
This is where I saw this happening:
If the part is clipped into the craft it will cause a violent reaction
That's why I had the small I-Beam gizmoed out from it.

This happened to me twice in the first days of 1.11 . I wanted to know what happened and now you showed me, thank you.
I made my own ship and tested it. It worked with an Ant, a Terrier, a cone, a small tank, but didn't work with a solar panel for some reason. Rapidly moving the ship doesn't destroy it, but some large Kraken forces happen when the ship collides with the engineer, either by sliding the ship into him or if you do the test while he is on the stairs. The highest forces I got accelerated Bill to 250m/s relative velocity.
Huge explosions happened again on a station in Mun orbit with the engineer on a ladder. Placing a part has about a 5% chance of destroying the entire station. Happened (1) while attaching a OX-4L 1x6 panel to a Jumbo-64 fuel tank. (2) attaching an Ant engine to a cubic octagonal strut.
NOTE: for case (2) the Esc key stopped working. I couldn't access the pause menu. I had to Ctrl-Alt-Del and kill KSP. This is bad.
