I am submitting a change which makes the evals with pruning cubefull ones.
I suggest you make a windows build so that people who complain about the prune vs, reduced can check if it makes a difference.

Still waiting for one of them to post a position.

'Tiny' is now redefined to 5 candidates within 0.08.

with this

Can't fix.

| 5) Of course the biggest problem of all is the sometimes poor results
of the
| pruning net in rollouts combined with the inability to use the old
| evaluations at reduced speed. 2-ply rollouts performed at 50% checker and
| 33% cube speed have proven quite accurate and considerably faster than
| 100%.  2-ply prune rollouts, while faster per number of trials, are not
| proving as accurate, and have very high standard error rates, making them
| possibly unusable.

No comment.
