Remote-control terminal access bug has gotten worse

For a while now, there has been a bug where if you are remote-controlling a grid and hit the Terminal access key, you get the "Ship has been disconnected" message. Until the new update, you could work around this, but now you cannot.

There are two ways to trigger this

Procedure 1:

1) Pick a grid and remote control it from your suit

2) Hit the key to bring up the terminal - this should give you access to the grid's terminal, inventory, GPS, etc. Actual result: "Ship has been disconnected"

3) Try to work around this by hitting shift + terminal key to bring up the remote connections menu. Normally, you could click the "Terminal" button for the grid you are controlling. Actual result: that button is grayed out.

Procedure 2:

1) Sit in a cockpit or a passenger seat.

2) Select a grid and take remote control of it.

3) Hit the terminal key. This should bring up the grid's terminal, inventory, etc. Actual result: you are shown the terminal for the grid you are sitting in.

4) Try to work around this by pressing shift + terminal key to bring up the remote connections menu. Click the Terminal button for the grid you are remoting into. This should give you access to the remote grid's terminal. Actual result: you are shown the terminal of the grid you are sitting in. This ONLY happens if you select the grid you have remote control of; any other grid comes up as normal.

5) Try to work around this by going to the terminal screen, then selecting the grid you want from the drop-down at the top. Actual result: you are brought back to the terminal for the grid you are sitting in. This ONLY happens if you select the grid you have remote control of; any other grid comes up as normal.

Please fix ASAP - this has removed the only workaround to an already bad bug and rendered a lot of gameplay simply impossible.
