I can't understand why, but I don't run the WinBoard Forum, so I can't
really help with that.

Not really.

You guessed wrong.

This one is meaningless.  You can't set mps to a negative value,
especially if you are also setting inc to -1, which means "use mps, not
inc".  I'm not sure what will happen if you do this.

> * /tc 5 /inc 0 /mps 0
This one means "game in 5 minutes."  However, you shouldn't have to set
mps to 0; if inc is set to a value greater than -1, mps is not used.

The details are in the manual.  I'm sorry you didn't find it clear.

Time control support is due to change and become more flexible in a
future release.  I think Daniel Mehrmann has done some work on that; at
least we discussed it a while ago.
