[Bug-gnubg] pubeval benchmark

How does gnubg perform against the pubeval benchmark in cubeless play? 

I ask because I'm playing around with a backgammon network and have got one 
that wins 83% of games and +0.945ppg against pubeval (10k cubeless games). This 
is a single 80-hidden-node network with outputs for prob of win, prob of gammon 
win, and prob of gammon loss; and just the original Tesauro inputs. 0-ply.

But in the TD-Gammon scholarpedia article it says that TD-Gammon 2.1 in 1-ply 
mode wins only +0.596ppg against pubeval. (I think 1-ply here means the gnubg 


That seems really low compared to my result, since I'm pretty sure 2.1 had 
gammon outputs and also extra customized inputs.

So I'm wondering if I'm interpreting this correctly, or if I have an 
incorrectly-setup version of pubeval, or something like that.
