Follow-up Comment #2, bug #27857 (project xboard):

I addressed this in the following way now (in the development branch):

XBoard keeps track of when the user offers a draw. When he offers a draw
before his move, and the move creates a claimable-draw position, the move is
sent to the ICS according to the FICS syntax for an atomic draw claim (i.e.
"draw MOVE"). For the benefit of ICS that do not understand this syntax (such
as ICC), the move is then also sent as plain "MOVE" after that.

This should now make for a unified procedure to handle the claim-after-move
case: just offer the draw (key bindings F6 on WinBoard, 'd' on XBoard) and
then play the move.

Would it be useful to have an option -autoDraw that always follows this
procedure when a claimable draw occurs? (Even if the user did not offer the
draw before?) And if the opponent's move causes a repeat, claim it
automatically the normal way (sending "draw")? Similar to -autoFlag for
claiming time losses?
