I have had the same bug cause my GNUBG installation to crash today.

Running version 0.14.3-dev; CL 1.1633 from 040719 on Win2k.

I couldn't save the position because GNUBG crashed, but I was on the bar
against a 2 or 3 point board, playing against GNU, and I rolled 2-1, which
caused me to dance.  I received a pop-up window that stated twice
"playername cannot move",  (Where "playername" was the name for the bottom
player) and GNU just closed.  I am running the program with the 2-d board,
panels un-docked, game, annotation, and hint windows open, but not message
window, and the main window somewhat smaller: width 540, height 619.

Hello Jxrn:

Thank you for making such a tremendous program available!!!!!

On my Sony/XP Home system, the following two things happen:

1.  When I try to go from 2-D to 3-D in "Settings", as soon as I press the
button after ticking the 3-D box, the program shuts down and wants to send
error to Microsoft.  It occurs to me that my graphics card may be at issue,
because I also have a Sony TR2 laptop which can handle the 3-D just fine,
although my main machine is less tha year old and so should be able to
handle it.

2.  When I am primed and cannot use either die of a given roll, the program
sends a dialogue box informing me that I cannot use either die, and then
promptly shuts down (no offer to contact Microsoft, either).  I haven't
whether it happens on my TR2 laptop unit yet (maybe I'm too good and never
primed on that machine....)

FYI - I am refering to the current 6.187 MB "setup.exe", downloaded just a
few days ago, augmented with with the 1.257 MB "gnubg040712Zip.exe".  I have
since gone back to the July 07 2003, 0.14 build, which works just fine on my

Thank you - Satyadhana
