My orbit changes when I use time warp

Question

Whenever I Time Warp usually with a big craft the orbit will change where I miss the encounter that I had already set up. Whenever this happens I have to load the most recent quick save and then quit the game and verify the game files and this will fix it temporarily.

This just happens sometimes, even in a stock install iirc. My advice is to slowly increase the time warp speed instead of quickly increasing it.

Yep, bugtracker page here: https://bugs.kerbalspaceprogram.com/issues/25761

It's been around for years, as far as I know.
@KerbalKiller2000 and @Jognt , got anything to say on the issue?

Lost my first Eve mission because I used "Warp to Maneuver" to warp to my 105km Pe burn to circularize and found myself to be a hot flaming mess inside the atmosphere.

I've now installed a mod to auto-quicksave every minute. This game's bugs are ridiculous. *looks at non-discounted price & rolls eyes*

Yeah, this helps for me. If you slowly increase time warp, your orbit will still change, but only but a couple hundred meters.

I'm having similar problems but it's getting worse as I add more craft in my savegame. Every time a craft crosses into a new SOI, the orbit changes. Worst case, in a polar orbit at Moho, I warped from 1x to 5x and the ascending node jumped about 15 degrees east/ west every time I warped or stopped warping.

 Yep. I still can't bring myself to pay for the DLC.

The orbit line changing during warp and jumping back to where it should be after warp is normal afaik. I'm talking about the orbit being different permanently.

Me too...permanently.  It did it over and over. :/

This problem isn't just polar orbit.  Equatorial trajectories have this problem too.  Highly eccentric orbits get affected more.
