[Bug-gnubg] XGID Player on roll always on the bottom

Pasting an XGID into GNUBG

XG has a bug pertaining to its command File-> Export-> Position to clipboard.

One of the check boxes allows users to put the "Player on roll always on 
bottom." When this box is checked, in cases where the top player is the dice 
owner, XG produces a board diagram that swaps the top and bottom players. The 
diagram is labeled incorrectly, however, with the XGID for the original 
position. To fix this bug, XG should produce a new XGID that corresponds to the 
swapped position, and export it along with the diagram.
Although some may call this a feature, I call it a bug! It is very 
disconcerting to look at a position on the Internet, and then have it swapped 
around when pasted into my bot.

I believe it is a mistake for GNUBG to "correct" this bug when an XGID is 
pasted into GNUBG. Let XG fix its own bugs! Consider that XG may correct this 
in a future release, and thereby require another fix for GNUBG.

If GNUBG is going "fix" this XG bug, then, at the very least, GNUBG should 
display a confirmation dialog before swapping players.
