Hi Neale,

the information in the FAQ was false, and is now removed. The FAQ may
be edited by anyone, and somebody not on the development team entered
the information. GNU backgammon doesn't cheat, it doesn't have to, and
if it did I doubt that it would do something so complicated as try to
predict the next number in the Mersenne Twister.
