Decouple Happens Upon Docking

Question

I have a lander/rover ship that I am docking with my space station. Right after I dock, the rover decouples from the lander and floats off in space. I never touched the keyboard or anything else.

What is going on?

Can you get screenshots and/or a video of it happening?

Log would be good too.  Directions on how to get that in here.

I posted that as I ran out for work. More info.

I am using KSP on Win10/Steam and with MechJeb. I was running v2.8.3 when the first two occurrences happened. I upgraded to the latest MechJeb and flew out to Vall again and got the same results. So KSP and my only addon are up to date.

I use action groups on most of my ships. Something triggers action group 4 when I dock. Here are some images.

Here's the log file. Sorry, I'm new at this stuff.

I believe that my mining ship has an action group of 4 and the rover has an action group of 4. I think they are interacting. Don't you need the ship files to be able to deal with that? Seems like you'd need the space station, the mining ship and the rover files to be able to recreate the problem, because they have to all have to hooked together to make the problem happen.

BTW I saw the rover decouple  3 different times. But I have moved past the problem by landing the rover without connecting to the space station first. The miner crashed into Vall. That is probably where the log file is now.

After looking at all the images, I'm going to guess that the docking port is in your staging list and MechJeb has AutoStage turned on in the Utilities.

FYI, debug screenshots are more useful with the UI turned on.

Yes, I use autostage. When I fly the rover I tell it to stop at stage 2, which is before the docking port. So it's ignoring that command?
