This has been brought up before when it first started happening, and the devs know about it, but so far, haven't been able to figure out why. They've even posted saying they've seen it themselves, but can't figure out what the actual problem is, since it doesn't seem consistent. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. You can have 2 people beam down to the station at the same time, and it might only happen to one person.
Until someone can reliably figure out how to reproduce it (and beaming up and down repeatedly while lots of people are on doesn't count, it has to be 100% of the time), or the programmers discover something wrong in the code while they're fixing other things, it's unfortunately very difficult to fix, even though everyone knows about it.
I usually just alt tab out and read the forums or something when it happens, unless I'm in a rush, in which case I'll just relog.
