hello,

i believe i've discerned a problem (feature?) involving the 
autorouter and the design rules check.  if i roll a schematic
onto a pcb, and then place a no net trace on the board thats
attached to nothing, the autorouter is blind to it but the
design rules checker picks up on it.  correct?

why would i even place a trace like that?  i didn't.  its 
just an example.  actually, after the schematic was shuffled
over to the pcb, some extra pads, vias, and traces were added
for high-speed considerations.  the autorouter appears to not
see them, and walks right over them.

am i correct?  if yes, then my question is why?  the autorouter
plays off the design rules, doesn't it?  so why can't it see
what the design rules checker sees?  

i'm in a serious eye-opening mode here.  i'm going to have to
rethink my design process.  

thanks, miker
