I cant believe what i have seen today ... after the PCB manufactor has
reported errors in gerber files

Protel 99SE SP6 

Image a track surrounded by a polygon. The track has a 45 degree corner. on
the outter side protel(as seen in draft mode) places a short ARC at the
corner, but in GERBER (as seen by camtastic) there is a track connected from
and to the points where the arc should be.
And because this is so, the clearance rule is not followed. i have setup the
clearance rule to 8mil for the whole board, but due to the BUG (Protel are
you listening ??) the effektive clearance is 6.2 - 6.4 mil at the edges and
so the board cost much more ....

has anybody a solution for that ???? is it realy so bad that i cannot trust
PROTEL that the gerber files do not contain what i see . even in draft mode
i would expect to see what is in gerber. 

an ARC is an ARC and NOT a TRACK !! (BTW: The PCB manufactor does not use
CAMTASTIC and he also does not see the arc, so i guess .. there must be a
track in the gerberfiles ...)
