Relic/Data sites, tractor beam issues?

I've noticed that sometimes when I click once on a scatter-can, I start moving towards the can rather than the tractor beam activating. Quite irritating. Am I doing anything wrong or is it just buggy? I realize that double-clicking should cause the ship to move toward it, but I'm just single-clicking.

Only click once on the can. Twice and you move towards it. You can be sure if you move towards it, you clicked on space once or clicked can twice.

It's not buggy as I do a lot of sites each day.

I'm certainly not double-clicking. And I can't get to the bottom of this. It makes it difficult to target the cans when the ship starts zooming all around. Perhaps it's a setting in the options menu or something.

If the mouse was defective (pressing once causes extra click) then I'd see other strange things in the game, but it only happens during the loot phase of Exploration sites.

It's puzzling.

Afaik you will start moving towards a can that is out of tractor beam range (3k I believe) if you click on it.

Confirming, when the can gets a distance of 3k+ you can't tractor
