Summary0002952: dock lists are not cleared between missions
DescriptionPretty much as the summary says.
In a release build, you can get cool stuff like the attached screenshot (from Surrender Belisarius!)
In a debug build, FSO hits an Assertion:
ASSERTION FAILED: "dock_list == NULL" at object/object.cpp:155 dock_list should have been cleared already!

It may also be responsible for some recently reported BluePlanet issues:
Steps To ReproduceStart any mission
Call in a support ship
When it is docked with you, end the mission (escape - quit)
Start any new mission
Additional InformationI believe this was introduced in 9995.
TagsNo tags attached.

Okay, I added a method to clear out docking instance information when obj_delete is called. The methods are called again in object::clear, so this should take care of all possibilities.

that looks like its solved the issue. I'll follow up with Lykurgos88 on the forum to confirm, but you may as well close it for now. I can always reopen if required.
