Default Problem with object location

Hello All

During my so called "gamification" efforts I have run into a strange effect, which occurs, when I try to reposition objects with Lua script.

I have attached two files below: the scenario and the script, to describe the problem.

Normally the script after 9 seconds should attach the cargo which is visible initially, to the ship, which appears in the second 7. Then, after another 2 seconds of simulation time, the cargo is detached and should fall onto the ground.

Instead it is "teleported" somewhere in the vicinity.

It looks like Orbiter is taking into account the ship position from different frame than the script. The effect can be observed with or without any modules running and under the DX9 or standard DX (Orbiter2016 of course). The effect can be bypassed by running the script not from the line in scenario file, but manually, from the Lua console.

I wonder: am I doing something wrong with my script, or is this behavior a bug?

Still havent tried but there's something I can't understand.

Why do you need to redefine both attachment positions? ( I suppose they are part of the vessel definition file .dll .cfg or else so why you need to reposition the attachments in the script)?

Where are pos_x,pos_y,pos_z defined before being referenced as the att_pos vector?

I had a similar issue and it was fault of the detachment happening in clbkpoststep instead of prestep, but i have no clue of how to apply this here
