This works for me (OSX). Can anyone else reproduce this?

I think you need to start a new project to reproduce the problem.
If I load the netlist using 5.0, save and reopen using the master branch then new footprints are added.

But if the board is empty and I load the netlist using the master branch then nothing is added.

I noticed that m_Modules is empty in pcbnew/class_board.cpp:2571 and the modules are added in that loop.

Attached is an example project that has the issue.

Same issue is on Fedora 28 build from Copr @kicad/kicad repository.

Previous working build:

It happens only when a board has no footprint.
