This is definitely a lag issue and I've seen it happen once as well. It has nothing to do with a given system/mission other than that a mission or system with a lot of people in it can create additional lag that may make it happen more frequently. Basically, the server hasn't been able to tell your game yet that you should switch from person to ship or ship to person. Once the lag catches up, you'll be the right thing. You'll tend to notice at the same time that you either disconnect or can't move for a bit as well when this happens. And you may not be able to reconnect until lag issues decrease.

Lag will go down over time, but you are going to see the same spikes on release day as well.
