Dummy pins generated for dummy gates #425
Overlapping dummy gates shared between two cells will create dummy pins which are not removed by "netlist.simplify".
The attached layout demonstrates the issue with this netlist extraction script (run as LVS - does not product a cross-reference, but only a netlist):
The effect is: the INV2X cell will have four dummy pins corresponding to the four dummy gates inside each INV2X.
