I believe that would be because the ship position updates are saved when you exit the program. When it crashes, they are not saved, so when you start SE up again, the clock is updated (hence planets and moons move in their orbits), but ship positions revert to where they were the last time you exited normally. (Or something like that.)
As for ships becoming undocked, you don't even need a crash for that happen. And I concur, that can be very frustrating.
