This happens when you don't have proper line of sight on a target. What I believe happens is the following:

The client creates a torp, then cooldowns for about a second or so while waiting for a response from the server that it has created a torp. If it gets one, it starts the proper cooldown. If it doesn't, it'll try and fire again, assuming the torp is set to auto-fire or you hit a button to fire it. Only a torp the server says exists will do damage.

I believe it is this way so the game feels responsive. You press the button, you see a torp, no delay. But the downside is that the torp that you see might not exist server side...
It seems you where correct, it works when im solo so I asume its the fault of auto assist.
Altho I dont find it anywhere to turn this off..
