The problem here is that gnubg assumes an infinite number of redoubles,
however, in your scenario only two can occur. The probability of the
cube reaching 32+ is roughly in the order of 1%. It'll probably not
affect the cubeful equity for the 4 cube.

I'd say ?ystein's calculations are correct.

Since the cube is dead you should use the cubeless equity, unless
gammons and backgammons does not count.

Same as scenario 1.

Same as scenario 1.
