I use the 3rd bar option as well, the first two settings don't let me use the hotkeys like I want.
I just ran into this problem last night. After running KA space and failing, I wanted to have the option of turning my DSSV into a healing machine by swapping a few BOs. I spent an hour choosing the tight abilities and assigning BO points.
I get to space and I realise what a mess switching between BOs can be. Why have so many BOs and hotbars if they're all wonky!!?
Switching between BOs should save key assignments, or as the OP stated, bar 1 should always be 1-9, bar2 ctrl+1-9, etc. No matter what sub-bar is selected.
Maybe no one else notices because they don't have the need to swap BOs for skills often. As for science ships, this is a function necessary to accommodate group support and solo roles.
