I would even think the same should apply to match play: when you win
more points than you need to reach the score limit (e.g. you win 4 points
being at -2), gnubg should award you only the points you need (2).

If you lead 20-1 in a 21 points match and you win simple with the cube at 2,
gnubg should shoud that you won 1 point and the match ends at 21-1
instead of showing that you won 2 points ending the match at 22-1 (which
I think is the case now).
