I should point out that GNUbg can't get a gammon. You already have one
man taken off. As long as you have one off you can't be gammoned or
backgammoned even if there is still a chequer outside your home. If you
had not taken any men off already then you would be correct.

>From the online Backgammon glossary the rule is:

"A completed game of backgammon in which the losing player has not borne
off any checkers. A gammon is also called a double game because the
winner receives twice the value of the doubling cube. Compare: Single
Game and Backgammon (2)."

Note the "losing player" and "NOT borne off any checkers".
