Re: m_graph is null when exporting netlist


It’s in the cross-probing code.  The init looks like this:

NETLIST_OBJECT_LIST* net_atoms = BuildNetListBase();
NETLIST_EXPORTER_KICAD exporter( this, net_atoms );

exporter.Format( &formatter, GNL_ALL );

payload = formatter.GetString();

I'm not a build machine now so I will be of limited use, but it sounds like somehow the exporter is being constructed without setting the pointer to the global connection graph object.
