Zone fill bug in 20090216-final


I just upgraded to Win 20090216-final for the design of our latest board and the improvements in KiCAD looks really great. Thank you developers for your efforts !

The problem I have is with the filling of one zone in one of the four layers. I draw the zone edges and try to fill the zone, but nothing happens (on the screen). I did a lot of testing with different zone outlines and found out that if I place a zone cut out area 5 x 5 mill at a specific place on the board the zone fills as expected. I can't see anything wrong with that particular area on the board and the zone fill command gives no error messages.

I'd like to send my board file to someone who has been working on the zone algorithms. It's a production board so I don't want to upload it to the forum.

Thanks again for a great work !
