Problem with tracks connecting that should no.

Problem with a zone short with a pad. DRC should detect as it violates electrical integrity.

I hope that it helps finding the problem.

I hope that only the .pcb is enough. I went all the way through eeschema, net, cvpcb, pcbnew to make sure that it is realistic.

Yes, I consider this to be a serious bug in Kicad. It happened to me in
2 situations:

Can you repeat this? i.e. can you come up with a way of creating a
track that bridges two nets and doesn't get caught by the DRC? I have
tried shorting to tracks out by placing a new track over two existing
tracks and KiCAD won't create the track because of the DRC error.

2) anything that is not a track but will produce a short-circuit in the

What is on the copper layer that is not a track? I presume you also
