Docking ports bugged in 1.12.2

So it now looks like ports are glitched in v1.12.2. I have a station in orbit of the Mun,  with a ship attached to a docking port on one end. I've just tried to undock it and the options to undock and dock aren't there. The options are also absent from the port it's attached to. This station has been left in orbit with the ship attached for over 40 in-game years. And no the ports are not locked.

Other ports on the station don't seem to be affected.  It's reminiscent of an old glitch dating back to 0.23 I think in which the only solution was to edit the save file, or try to dock another ship from the other end and then re dock (Kurtjmac encountered this during his let's play). 

However, I tried both (not sure if I edited the file properly) and the ports are still jammed.

This is the first station I've built in 1.12.2 and if this is a glitch, then it completely screws station design or using stations.  I just can't believe Private Devision have reintroduced an old glitch from years ago while faffing about with new and unneeded things like docking port alignment!

Same thing happening to me, I thought at first it was because I attached the Docking Port to a piston to extend it, but now everything I dock to the station gets stuck. If I stay focused on the craft or within render, no issues undocking if it was recently docked. But if I go off screen or if I go to the Space Center, anything docked at the time is now bugged. Messed  up like 4 of my missions at the same time.
