Stopping print causes nozzle to ram into bed.

Wondering if anyone else has had this issue or why on earth they would design it this way? I was starting a print, no filament was being extruded, so I clicked the "Stop" button on the LCD. The printer then moved up pretty quickly, and then very slowly moved down until the nozzle was slightly dug into the bed and stopped. I moved it up as quickly as possible, but now there is a small crater on my build plate! What would happen if i stopped the print half way threw printing something? would it just dig itself strait threw the print if not stopped? I just don't get it! I don't have any issues with the bed leveling or starting prints, this is the first blemish on my new machine.

What firmware version do you have? I recall this was an issue with some older FW (4.0.1 or such) and should be fixed.

I am running 4.0.5, I believe that is the most up to date version, correct?

Check your sensor reading and make sure the Pinda registers.

The Pinda probe seams to be working just fine, when I run the mesh bed leveling, the nozzle stays plenty far from the bed, and any print I start stays a perfect distance from the bed. It seams like it was relying on the trinamic driver to know when to stop, I have no way to test that though.
