It's possible, but I like the current situation better. Two instances are
inconvenient and I forget about the moves I made (and why) if I concentrate
on a new match. Well, not entirely, of course. ;-)  It's just much better
for the learning effect to see the mistakes immediately. (Tutor mode
results in a very slow game play on my computer. Besides, I want to know
how I fare without assistance.)

I don't mind this. I know that it's certainly a bad idea to open a new file
while an analysis is in progress. Who wants to do this anyway?

I hope that you could then not just use the sledgehammer method like with
the menus (actually it's the same "bug", you just forgot about the
shortcuts). What about just inhibiting certain fatal actions, like loading
a new file? Maybe a flag fAnalysisInProgress and check it in the dependent

Any thought about my move navigation/shortcut suggestion?
