Hey guys - there is also another issue at play here, at least for me. It's important the OP said "I was dragged in to the encounter" - I've had the same thing, but it isn't limited to encounters. It is basically popup windows being "auto confirmed", even when your hands are away from the keyboard and mouse. I get this a lot - conversations will automatically close, I'll enter systems without confirming - it just seems like sometimes, the F key is being pressed for me

I don't know if the OP has the same problem, but it's been plaguing me like crazy. Usually when it happens with an encounter, I warp into an enemy-camped spawn area, and just about escape intact if I'm lucky. Some interactive pickups just pick themselves up without prompting via the F key. Passing merchants in sector space hail me (when I haven't even contacted them), apologising that they're "closing up shop and moving on" - I never intended to chat with them in the first place!

Maybe this problem is causing some of the OP's confusion?
