When you first got the warning, were there any traces on the board?

Were some of the component pads touching each other?

Are you certain that there are no shorted nets in the routed design?
(I should hope not, if so its a serious bug and I want it fixed)

Was this autorouted?

Do you have a copy of the layout in the state where you had
the shorted nets warning you could post?
