Bug Description

Have just updated to V5.1.1 and now noticed that if added or edited symbol the PCB part loses pad net definitions. Either by import netlist or Update PCB from schematic.
Only way to recover is to save all then close PCB and close schematic, then re-start schematic.

At this point the following error msg appears before schematic will open:-
"An error was found when loading the schematic that has been automatically fixed. Please save the schematic to repair the broken file or it may not be usable with other versions of KiCad. I Have to press OK. "

Importing the last netlist, without regeneration, did not fix part pad net label definition in PCB. However Update PCB from schematic DID fix part pad net label definition. If I now regen netlist in schematic part pad labels are then correct again in PCB.

This seems related to bug 1824627 [1]. I also had issues with netlisting while exporting to SPICE netlist in example on latest nigthlies.

As stated in [1], restarting eeschema will fix issues with netlisting stuff.
