Create array (vias) - BUG?

Hallo, I’m having some troubles into creating arrays of vias on 4.0.2 stable. When I try to create a pattern of vias to connect two planes or between a track and an underlying plane I often found created vias not assigned to the net while the ‘source’ vias was.
There’s ‘secure’ way to create array of vias? There’s a way to assign vias to the net after they creation (without editing the kicad_pcb file?

drop them while you lay down a track to keep them connected to the NET.
Vias without track will loose the NET and you can delete them only.

PS: the developers are aware that people would like to be able to do what you do without the tracks and I think there was some work done on that already in some developer version…
