I too have had my evasive button gain the white border of non workyness. This was pre season six though. When we were bombing each other with PSW3 to check it out, Mav had his distribute button do this. So we will see. Seems there is a frisky bug loose.
You would think Kittypaws the Web of Death would be catching all these buggies for dinner.....
Or to leg eggs in to create more of his insipid breed!!!!

I've noticed it happen with weapons most often. It seems to be an issue of turning outside of your firing arc just as you hit the fire button. Sometimes it doesn't shoot the target and eats any high yield/overload buffs, sometimes it just locks them completely. It seems to happen much more often in higher turn rate ships like my Bird of Prey, so I'm thinking that's it.
As for powers like Emergency Power to Shields and Distribute Shields where there is no firing arc... dunno.
