When using a mining beam in the beta server, all goes well until i decide to unload or sell what im currently carrying.

More often than not, the materials being sold disappear (like they should), except after they have been sold, the beam does NOT continue to mine that particular resource.

Or so it seems..

If i turn the mining beam off and then drop my cargo, however, the resource that was dropped previously and didnt seem to keep mining suddenly appears in the cargo hold as 1 unit of that resource. If i drop/sell that 1 unit, another one pops right back up. I have found that it will keep doing that until you drop X amount of resources (in increments of 1), where X is the amount of resorces that WOULD HAVE been gathered if it had continued mining it after it had been sold.

This can happen to any resource, any number of resources, and anywhere. In some cases, it continues to mine normally, but usually not. Its very strange and rather annoying, as it makes it impossible to mine one resource instead of another (by dropping the unwanted mineral, leaving the space open for the wanted one to take its place).

What is mind?
Doesn't matter.

Please post this on the Beta network

Its useless here and clutters the release forum for those who dont give to monkeys .

This problem is already documented, as are a lot of bugs if you take a look at the beta forum.
