This build does not show the #Q0 issue anymore (even with the cache
activated). I was one of the few(?) having that challenge with your
build. So far so good.

It does however reintroduce the automatic new match. Start a match,
first occasion resign backgammon (gnubg accepts). Continue next game.
Go back to the previous game, go forward to the new game, click in the
dice area: gnubg starts a new 7 pointer (my default).
