Zone fill hangup?
I have been using Kicad 4.0.7 successfully. I just decided to give the upcoming 5 series a try, so I set up a Fedora VM and loaded the COPR 100:r11969.dc66b73-nightlies.fc27 build.
Most everything I've tried works fine, but zone fill in pcbnew just appears to hang. Running "top" doesn't show anything sucking up time - it just never completes.
All that I get is a dialog box titled "Fill All Zones", with a message "Calculating zone fills...". The Elapsed time counter shows 0:00:00, and the progress bar doesn't move. If I click the Cancel button, it goes gray, but the box stays up.
The same thing happens if I try to run a DRC - as soon as it tries to fill zones, it hangs. This board behaves properly in 4.0.7. I even tried deleting the zones and re-adding them but that has no effect.
I've put the project, schematic, board file, etc up on dropbox in case anyone wants to take a look at it:
I'll be happy to file a bug, but first I wanted to see if this is operator error or a known problem.
