Harmless unless you actually have unlocked the component - and then the 
classic missing pad can be generated.  Select a net (or connected copper), 
which includes components with unlocked primitives.  Delete the selection 
and away go the pads.  This is a problem and it would be nice if Protel 
gave a warning that component entities were about to be deleted/moved by 
this action.
