Fixed in play.c rev. 1.430 (gnubg 1.03 or later).

I see the problem. Which version are you running (Help -> About -> Build Info)?

The position screenshot seems to have run afoul of the upload limit; trying a smaller one...

Yes, I'm sure it wasn't a resignation. I've just replicated it and done a screenshot; attached. Also attached a screenshot of the build info window, perhaps it has some relevant info.

I cannot reproduce the problem. Are you sure that you didn't mistake the resignation for a redouble. If you can reproduce, please report back. Closing for now.

Hi folks,

Was just playing against GNUBG with the GUI client and from this position it decided that it should redouble to 8 (in a 9-point match):


This is harmless as it's going to lose a gammon and the match anyway, but it seems like incorrect play. Correct play would be to resign.
