It's a windows related problem. I commited an experimental fix the other
day, and Nardy confirmed that the fix did indeed fix the problem.

Wait for the next build :-)

The logic for adding a player's record is:

* read records from .gnubgpr
* calculate new records
* write new records to .gnubgprXXXXX
* rename .gnubgprXXXXX to .gnubgpr

However, for some reason the last step fails on wintendo. I've modified
the logic to:

* read records from .gnubgpr
* calculate new records
* write new records to .gnubgprXXXXX
* delete .gnubgpr
* rename .gnubgprXXXXX to .gnubgpr

which apparently seems to work -- don't ask me why :-)

For those of you wondering what XXXXX is: it's the number of seconds
since Jan 1 1970 modulo 100000 on wintendo, and the process ID modulo
100000 on unix boxes.
