Two serious bugs in eeschema & pcbnew
(and especially Jean-Pierre...).
The latest builds of KiCAD contain at least two bugs.
when you have several ICs, named U1, U2, U3..., at least one time the
program insists on change U5 (or U8?) into U038. You change the name
and save; then you search the files (.sch, .net...) for a reference to
U038 and none comes up but, if you reopen and do a schematic check
(for errors), the IC gets renamed. I suspect some problem with
unicode, but did'nt have time and/or skills to check.
Several and obscure bugs. It is more difficult (no: impossible) to
select a footprint field (text) if it lies on a track or inside a
module. It seems that you can close the main window without being
asked for save, even after a massive work (I lost a few hours of work
this way). After seeing this, I switched back to the 2006 version.
These problems showed up on a windows XP machine - I also noticed that
the windows distribution (zip file) does no more have a "winexe" and
