Hi Ralph, 

You could cut and paste the position ID rather than send the whole file; this 
would allow us to check the position. 

I'm guessing that it's something to do with the match score that affected how 
gnubg offers a resignation. For example, maybe 2 points was enough for you to 
win the match anyway, so it didn't matter whether gnubg conceded 2 or 3.

gnubg 1.05.002-2 on Arch Linux.  Near the end of a game, gnubg offered to "3" 
resign.  I thought this was odd because it was possible, depending on the 
rolls, that the best result I could definitely achieve was a gammon.  And so it 
proved.  I have the 88,928-byte SGF file, if it would be useful;  let me know 
how to provide it.  But meanwhile, I wondered if this was a common thing and 
I'm misunderstanding why it might happen.  (Novice players here.)

Cheers, Ralph.
