The behaviour you describe in the last comment looks like the most likely explanation. What may be surprising is that it will only happen relatively rarely, when you don't have access to the cube, else the computer would pause to give you the opportunity to either double or roll.

Note that you shouldn't have to scroll back to check if you have the moves list shown. The non-entering roll should be there, with no move associated.

So, it's a tossup whether or not this is happening. I now think that when I'm on the bar the computer plays,

and then I autoroll, fail, and play returns to the computer, at which point it offers a double, and it happens so quickly that it seems like the computer is still on it's last play.

At least, that's what just happened.

If I had to guess, I'm on the side of illusion now, but it could change. I've been using the scroll back feature, and when I've looked, I always do have dice for the spot I thought I missed.

I was unsure as to whether or not this was really happening; it doesn't always, but I just saw it again.

Just after the computer moves, it offers double, but

the dice don't show, then I click in that spot anyway,

the double is accepted and the computer rolls again.

Just after I roll, the computer offers me a double. Accepting it steals my turn and the computer rolls again.

It seems like there are two interrelated problems.

1) The computer shouldn't offer a double on my turn (immediately after I roll).
2) Accepting the double shouldn't end my turn. This makes some sense if the code assumes that an accepted double can only happen just before the computer rolls.
