Problems in Ratsnest



I saw your info for me in the last change log.

I have no problem about rastnest computation, and it was tested on some large boards
(8 layers , 950 footprints, 3900 pads and bga...)

As you know, zones are not used in rastnet computation.

I agree with you, the zone handling must be reconsidered, and perphaps redesigned.

But you said me you have connected all the gound (or power) pads with tracks. And of course tracks are connected to the pad centres because pcbnew "catches" the cursor on a pad,
and put in on this center.

I don't know a Recalcule_all_net_connexion() bug.

Some times ago, i saw it could "forget" a connection, in rare conditions, but i solved this problem.

So can you send me your board file, because I don't understand what happens.
