pcbnew startup from clean
Hey, has anyone started pcbnew with nothing in ~/.config/kicad recently?
I just did, and loaded a project, and this is what I got:
I had to manually set the canvas from inside pcbnew. Otherwise the
rendering was completely screwed up, everything piled on top of
everything in a way that I couldn't even really tell what was going on.
Uninitialized setting somewhere, maybe? It's entirely possible this is
specific to this machine, I also haven't started from clean in a long
time. Just curious whether anyone's testing those code paths.
I also had to apply this patch to keep pcbnew from segfaulting when I
open menus. Suppose I should probably open a proper bug for this one,
but I'm a bit confused by it (it seems like this should have been broken
for a long time for everyone, but it...isn't?)
