Re: gEDA-user: How do the priorities work in PCB?

Pcb is supposed to always choose the smallest area object near the cursor,
priority to the active layer, followed by the stack-up. I think that
viewed-side elements
have highest priority when both silkscreen and pins/pads are turned on.

So there could be a bug - see if you can create a simple example to
illustrate it.
