[Bug-gnubg] Bug? Or ?

  Haven't written before so please forgive me if this isn't the right
avenue for discussion or for attaching files.

  I'm using the version currently available at
http://www.gnubg.org/downloads/windows/ for Windows, described as:

  "The archive contain GTK+ library files, an executable based on the
CVS repository 20. April 2004 development version 0.14.2 branch
(ChangeLog 1.1565) "

  Help/About says the version is 0.14.devel.

The possible bug:
  So much for history.  In the attached saved match, the game would not
let me make a move that Robertie claims is within the rules.  In
particular, if you have 2 dice and there's a way to play both but you
instead to play just one of them knowing that if you do, that the other
won't be able to be played, then this is legal.  In some circumstances,
this makes sense.  In the attached match (me playing the computer), I
rolled a 43 and wanted to play (black) 16/13* and lose the second die's
turn (knowingly.)  Gnubg let me make that move just fine.  But clicking
on the dice to finish the turn, since there were no valid moves for the
4, did not finish my turn.  Since there were no valid moves for the 4,
nothing could be done.  I had to undo the 16/13* and play 16/12 and 4/1
instead, the only other valid play with the 43 at that point.  Either
Gnubg is wrong, or Robertie is wrong ...which is it?

Player settings:
  Note: I was 'human' and the gnubg computer player was at all the
normal defaults, except that I'd selected 'Advanced' for both the dice
and cube playing.  I turn off automatic doubling and rolling (for me).
