As proposed by Christian, I would go with a magnifying glass (often
to a 'find' action, but should do it anyway). (And i would also get rid of
'analyze session' menu, just merge it into 'analyze match/session').
Another easy thing to fix is to move the 'edit' button in the toolbar far
away from the 'hint' button, for example, right between the separator and
'stop' button. That's really easy, just a matter to move the button
code to the right place.

That would be nice too. Something like save match now (not analyzed, prompt
for name), analyze and save again (prompt for name, default to same name as
before). Very very handy.

On the subject, one of the often heard missing functions is the
"finish game" button, used to let the bot play against himself to speedup
the end
of a game (non contact). I know it's kinda silly (you can resign, the bot
as soon as he thinks it is correct, bearoff errors exist), but many user
keep on
asking for it ... my 2c : not worth the effort. Just to let you know.
