I wasn't aware you could cam to another avatar by using the Mini-map.  I always use the People/Nearby window and double click on the name there.

It's a feature in Firestorm and perhaps other viewers. Sometimes it gets confused and cams to the wrong location. Once it does it continues to show the avatar that location on the minimap though it's not there. I think that leaving the region then coming back resets it, but that was a test I tried a long time ago. The bug usually sends my camera to <0,0,0>. In my case that's fine, because I use the feature to work on things at ground level when I'm on my build platform (at 3300 meters). I just need to get my camera to ground level, then I can cam to whatever I want to work on. (Yeah, I'm lazy.)

If you double-click on the minimap it will teleport you to that location. I believe you can change this feature in settings. So you either are double-clicking and not realizing it, our your mouse or trackpad may be getting wonky or have double-click settings too sensitive.

For other readers: All viewers allow you to "Zoom" onto other avatars from the "Radar" in the "People" widget (right click a name and choose Zoom.) Though, Firestorm allows you to right-click a green dot on minimap and choose "Cam" from the pop-up menu for the same thing. Because Firestorm is all about voyeurism and spying on others.
