99se waring

The warning is trying to tell you to check all your vias and pads that touch the boundary of the plane split. Protel has no way of checking if the overlap of pads, vias and internal plane primitives has partially or completely broken a connection. The warning serves as a reminder to check each pad and via where such an overlap exists to make sure that the intended connections are all still made.
