Bug Description

Hi all,

In latest nightly, moving a footprint in PCBnew will make its ratsnest appears even when the "ratsnest" item from the layer manager is unchecked.

This "local" ratsnest will stay displayed until another footprint is moved.

To reproduce :

Hide all ratsnest through by unchecking the "Ratsnest" item from the second tab of the layer manager.
Move a footprint.

Please see attached video.

Best regards,

It appears that the display ratsnets setting is being ignored at least on windows.

This also happens if you double click the footprint, press e for properties or similar.
doubleclicking anywhere on the window removes them again
