Was this schematic created by eeschema? Or did an external program modify it?

The spin values for the labels are incorrect and should not be able to be created by any path I can see in eeschema. I've added some defensive code here to prevent crashes.

Yes, it was created by same version of eeschema. Not sure which operation broke it, but I was even playing with "Edit Text and Graphic Properties" which behaves slightly buggy. (gotta summarize it to new bugreport) I also did some rotations and mirroring to value and reference fields by shortcuts. Not sure why it broke only this paricular hierarchical schematic.
