I don't see a problem here. If you play with tutor off, gnubg doesn't analyze your moves on the fly and cannot highlight them.

Moreover, highlighting a missed double would give a strong hint at doubling next turn if the following exchange was not too unfavourable.

After you asked a hint on the move, gnubg has its analysis and you have an evaluation of the position, so highlighting it if deserved doesn't give away anything.

I have the cube tutor turned off. When I make a bad doubling decision, that turn isn't highlighted in the game record. But if I select a prior turn, click the arrow for "Go to Previous Roll" to get to the doubling decision point, and click Hint, then the turn gets highlighted in the game record.
