Original message was about schematic but you have raised issues about 
PCB.  I have seen times when PCB has a ratsnest line going to an empty 
location on the PCB.  There is nothing there - at least nothing of size 
greater than 0.  Can be very frustrating to get rid of (I am not sure how I 
do it as it happens rarely).

Is this what you are seeing with arcs deleted from a PCB?  In a number of 
cases where I had this phantom connection I do not recall using arcs in 
that area but maybe I had.

Can you give more details on this please?  This would be a worthwhile bug 
to try to track down.
