Everspace with Encounters DLC (32 bit on Windows 7 x64)

I found the same bug described here ->

Sometimes the turret just follow the enemies, and jumping to another node in the same sector (it is not really necessary to change the sector) the turret starts to work again.

Edit: I would have left a reply to let him known he's not the only one experiencing the problem but I don't have an account on Steam.
