It does, but if the position is in the db already, nothing should
happen. If it isn't the rollout of 576 trials is extremely fast.
Anyway, analyse/show effective pipcounts seems to be better. (Selects
the position in the db or rollouts 576 trials, which is of course too
few). Most people have a smaller db than the one you use and therefore
needs to do a rollout.

Agreed, but this is besides my point. Do you still think we need the
evaluate window?
