There are several different settings gnubg uses. For play, you need to
go to Settings->Players->Player0. This controls how gnubg will play
against you.

When you press Hint, gnubg does an analysis based on 

When you analyse a Match it uses the settings under Settings->Analysis

The reason each of these are (or can be) set differently is to allow
you to choose how quickly each function takes place. Setting 2 ply
Supremo with 2 ply cube can make gnubg take a few seconds before
making some moves, giving a hint or whatever. Some people choose to
have Hints be much quicker than a full analysis. 

If the settings are the same (and you haven't deliberately chosen to
add Noise (to make it play a bit worse), then the Analysis will agree
with the hints which will be exactly what gnubg plays. If they differ,
then for some moves, you will get different hints/play/analysis
