I launched a 3 crew Mun mission, landed successfully, but was critically low on fuel. The return trip wasn't going to make it home, so I decided to send an unmanned rescue mission.  I just copied the original ship, threw a remote guidance unit and some larger rockets and fuel tanks and got my rescue ship to the Mun with plenty of Dv to make it back home.  I landed within about 1k of the original crew, but when the dust from landing settled, that first ship showed it was now 10k away.  10k below the surface of the Mun!  Bummer for them, I thought, at least I can still bring the rescue ship back home.  Well, when I couldn't see the stranded crew initially, I switched to the tracking station, then to the first ship.  Once I realized they were stuck under the surface of the Mun, I went to switch back to the unmanned rescue ship, but I am getting an error when I try to do so "observer can't leave active vessel".  ?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Lett?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Lett

Also got this on Duna doing the exact same thing. Ran out of fuel and sent an unmanned vessel for recovery, but when the new vessel got into orbit of Duna the original vessel was under the surface. Switching to the glitched vessel made it so I could not switch out.
