Comment 6 for bug 602176

The thermal relief algorithm currently knocks out the 4 polygons around the spokes/pad. To fix this we'd need to change that to knocking out a single polygon and then adding back in the spokes. It's too late in the 5.0 dev cycle for that kind of change, so I'm pushing this to 6.0.

(FWIW, an algorithm as described would more easily handle different numbers of spokes: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1661963)
