I go away from him as slowly, quietly and deep as I possibly can. But he follows. He doesn't engage. He's just stalking me.

There's no way he should be able to when I'm going at 0.5 knots 200m down.
But I guess they've somehow time-traveled and got some ASW equipment from 3017.

Anyway. I get frustrated and surface to maybe draw him in closer. But this guy keeps his distance. He just wont do ANYTHING.

So what's the problem then you might wonder? HE'S LIMITING MY TC TO X64 ARGGHH!

He's too far away for me to shoot at him with my deck gun. (I mean...not technically but practically.) So hurray. Loading a 2 hour old save because the game decided this would be a great time to overwrite that autosave... Oh well.
Sticky destroyer bug. Sometimes 1 of the escorts of a convoy will do it to you too and screw up your attack. It is frustrating, but a save/reload will normally "release" them.
