Happends with Saitex X-55 Rhino and Rudder paddels aswell, does not happen everytime, it happends randomly when using, the method described by vision33, but also if the mission have build-in setting like setting view distance. TrackIR on the otherhand is not effected.

Also happens with Logitech Extreme 3d Pro joystick, only possible way that I've found to get joystick controls visible again is to restart the game.

Issue is still not resolved. Joystick deactivation also happens during singleplayer now.

Happens with Saitek X52 Pro too.
