Don't start layer at overhang

I noticed that it would occasionally start extruding over an overhang, leaving a bad finish on holes. It needs to start anywhere except the unsupported spot.

Have you tried with enabling support structure?
Shall we ask the stl and gcode files for test?

This is something I have noticed in the gcode preview as well. The layer start point is sometimes in the air. When it could (and should) have started at another point on the layer there it has the previous layer to rest on. This would give better overhangs in some cases.
