Observed behavior

Search and rescue missions are sometimes impossible because the vessel you're rescuing gets destroyed shortly after arriving in the system they're in. In my case there's a vessel in 96 Ceti that free-falls into a gas giant when I get there. After hyper-spacing out of that system and then back into it, the same vessel is there again, alive and well as if nothing happened, and free-falls into the gas giant again. There's no way to abort or complete the mission.

Expected behavior

Either all search and rescue missions include ships in stable orbit, or if they free-fall into a gas giant they get permanently destroyed and the mission is failed. Bonus points if you get to take the spare crewman back to a spaceport safely.

Steps to reproduce

Download and run the latest stable Pioneer version from feb 2019, start doing search and rescue missions until you do one where the spacecraft you're trying to rescue mysteriously disappears while you're beginning the maneuver towards it. Hyperspace out of that system and back into it, observe that the spacecraft is alive and well again. Use the system map to find out what's happening to the spacecraft.

My pioneer version (and OS):
Pioneer 20190203 (425c372) Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS x86_64
