Overview not showing correct distance to stations?

Seems that the overview got a bit bugged after the 1.0.1 patch.

As you can see on the screenshot, the overview says that am 18km away from the station, but the selection of the station in space shows 0km, which is the one that is correct. So it's just a display bug it seems, and it only happens to station it looks like.

I confirm it happened after the Crucible 1.0.1 on 6/12/2011.
The zero point for the NPC stations, according to the overview, is far out from the station (in space).
So, when you undock, you are on a distance 15 to 40 km from the station, according to the overview, and - as you come out of the station - you approach it.
But you can dock anywhere between that zero point and the actual spot that you undock (near the station on the screen).
In fact, when warping to the station, the ship warps to and docks at that far-away zero point, and you can see the station away in the distance...

What seems to have happened, is a much bigger 'safe' area near the stations, where you can manuevre and 'dock' anytime.
And the 'warp point' has changed from the station itself, to a point away from the station - but you can dock OK there, so functionality is complete.

Has this happened on purpose? I didn't find any mention on it in the patch notes.
