It is probably due to the match score.
The Crawford rule says you can’t redouble in the first game after the opponent reaches 1 away from winning. E.g. at 4-1 in a 5-point match.
Gnubg will also roll automatically when the cube is “dead”, that is, when it is high enough to win the match for you already. For example, a 2-cube at 5-2 in a 7-point match.
Hope this helps.

I'm running 1.05.000 on an Ubuntu desktop. gnubg is highly entertaining, however, I'm mystified and frustrated by two things:
1. The doubling cube fails to appear in some games.
2. Other times when I own the cube, gnubg automatically rolls my dice without giving me the opportunity to redouble.
Can someone tell me why this happens?
