Multi-kill of Same Enemy Medals Not Working Properly

Not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but I have gotten several of these medals even though I lost my ship between killings.  For instance, I killed a command fighter several times, got the first multi kill medal.  Then I died.  Then i killed him some more and got the next level of the multikill medal.  Idk, doesn’t match the description of the medal, so what’s up?

A lot of stuff isn’t working properly. A lot more than usual, too.
