End game could be modified I guess, but "End Game" does go to the end of
the game (literally). Since a person uses it in an automated way, I
think some people want to review what the computer did before going to
the next. Usually when I use end game I am curious how it unfolds,
however I can see the argument of changing the behaviour.

Whether it should advance to the next game could be debated here. We
could modify it to behave which ever way people decide it should be.

However, with that being said it acts the same way as GNUBG behaves when
the option "settings/game tab/start new games immediately" is UNchecked.
The game isn't frozen. You should be able to click the area in the mid
board where the dice usually are and it should start the next game. If
clicking the area where the dice are rolled (on the right side of the
board) doesn't work then there is another bug - although it seems to
work here.
