The loading screen that opens when you click OK is freezing the game, and only if a UAV Camera is open in a HUD display.
Not the PIP quality change itself which happens live in the background when you click on the option.

We will likely not fix this as I think this combination (HUD UAV Camera + mid-game PIP Quality change) is somewhat rare.
And 2.06 release is planned for next week so changing things now is risky
