This isn't exactly a bug, probably, but it is very annoying behavior on the part of the AI and this seems like the best place to post about it. When you have a number of autons and you are sitting at a station when a random encounter occurs the autons fire at the enemy ships but often fire right into the station you are at. If you have a number of autons this ramps up quickly and the station becomes hostile towards you and starts attacking you. It would be nice if the autons were smart enough to not fire into friendly stations and ships so much as to trigger this effect. This just happened with a second station for me so now I am just going to have to leave these autons behind so as not to risk this happening again. Please think of some way to prevent autons from causing friendly stations becoming hostile! I also have a wingman whose AI does the same thing.

In 1.8 AI ships are more accurate and better at avoiding friendly fire.
