True it is a poor fix, best fix would be to implement clearance check for non-
oriented pads. The question is what we do until this is implemented:

Option 1 (current state): Ignore these and do not generate DRC marker. This 
would mean that there are undetected DRC violations.

Option 2 (my suggestion): Generate errors in those cases, where we can not say 
whetern DRC rules are met. This will generate false positives...

Option 3: Enhance Option 2 by simple bounding box check to reduce false
