Maybe I am missing something huge, but it's stince I started playing that the following happens:
1) I fleet up my alts (in NPC corp)
2) I mine and jet can with hulks piloted by the above
3) The hauler alt (NPC corp) in the fleet sees a WHITE can, opens it and takes the mineral.
Now, in a completely unpredictable way, right _after_ taking away the mineral, some times this can turns YELLOW, even when mining a mission asteroids with none in the vicinity. Every other alt still see it white, only the hauler sees it yellow.
This is fine and dandy, no odd aggression timers nor anything. Just the annoying wrong yellow color coming up at random times (once yellow the can stays yellow till it's popped)
Now, since I fleet PvP I had to disable the "others" loot warning else I'd get crazy with those warnings every time we loot the enemies.
Result: harassers come to my miners and ninja flip the cans while I am i.e. driving the hauler ship inside a station so I can't notice them on the miners' screens.
What happens when I am back? I see the usual, bugged yellow can and take stuff out. But wait, this time it was NOT bugged, it was bug-yellow before but now a can flipper flipped it and it is still yellow so (due to having had to disable the steal warning) I can't figure out that I am going to give him a nice 15 minutes aggression timer. Of course the guy will magically uncloak 2 seconds later and pop my T2 fitted indy.
Now, I imagine you'll tell me: "just reenable steal warning" but I can't recall to toggle it every time (I must disable it all days not to get crazy in roaming PvP) but why should I do that, when the overview should inform me of what's going on with a WHITE color when I am opening my fleet cans and YELLOW when a flipper violated one of them?
