Program nodes that are not defined appear as defined when they are selected while a background program is running

Software version : 5.3.1.64192
Robot generation : G5

Steps to reproduce :

  1. Create a new empty program
  2. Add a move node and do not set the waypoint. The node should be colored yellow in the tree, as it is not defined.
  3. Connect via SSH to the robot. Send a sleep command as follow to run it in the background
    echo "sleep(30)" | nc -q1 localhost 30003 &>/dev/null
  4. In the next 40 seconds, select the Waypoint1 node of the move node in the program tree. The node will be colored white as if it was defined, while it is not.
  5. When the background program stops (after 30 seconds), the move node will be colored yellow again.

Expected behavior :
Any nodes that are not defined should be colored yellow at all time, even if a background program is running.

Actual behavior :
Program nodes that are not defined appear as defined when they are selected while a background program is running
