[CommandBox 5.5.2+00578] Server CD, Server start trying to create new server

In the image below, you’ll see that I did two commands…

server cd _scratch
server start

Lately, everytime I do this, the “server start” command tries to create a new server. I’m unsure why. I usually select the [x] Cancel box, but then it asks “Please enter a unique name for this server…” at which point I slam CTRL+C a few times.
Then I do:

server start

again, and the intended (and previously configured and previously used (many times)) server starts up.

Any ideas?
