Re: fp_arc confusion
It's not an error. Arcs are part of the DRAWSEGMENT object which
encapsulates line segments, arcs, etc. The start coordinate (m_start
member) is the center point for arcs and circles. It is documented as
such in the KiCad source.
wxPoint m_Start; ///< Line start point or Circle and Arc center
