The only problem is that having the -zp switch enabled makes the fics admins jumpy since they detect the engine loaded on the server with your non computer account.

I do not see how to analyze a game with a chess engine -- with it showing which moves are mistakes. Is this feature available?'Mistake' is a relative concept. Even the best human player does play
most moves different from what a top engine would consider best, and
loses score as a consequence. In XBoard you can use the Mode->Analyze
Game menu to analyze the currently loaded game from the currently
displayed position to the end (or to when you decide to stop, by
selecting another Mode).
When over FICS, the "Mode->Analyze Game" menu is greyed out, but I would like to analyze games together with other players at the server.
Err, no. -zp switch makes the 'analyze game' menu available.
But I can't observe myself. Like described here:
From what I could see there is a workaround - creating a second account on server just for analyzing a past game.
