[Bug-gnubg] 'Assertion Failed' in GNU BG 0.14.3

    Greetings from Romania !

    I noticed a persistent bug with GNU Backgammon 
for Windows, v0.14.3-devel Build Nov. 5, 2004:
    On some cases (haven't been able to determine
which) of impossible move with existing dice, it says
in a window (yes, twice!)
"user cannot move
user cannot move" 

    and crashes with:
"Assertion failed. 
File: play.c
Expression: !fComputing
Line: 1801"

    This happens in roughly 1/10 of games.

    Otherwise, congratulations for a great software !
I had been interested in game AI, evolutionary optimization 
and neural networks some time ago. I knew some statistics
but was amazed at the depth of the notions you use:
stratified rollouts, "cubeful equity", doubling-points etc.

    Best wishes !
