The first thing I will ask is if you have Crawford Rule enabled in
settings. Go to "Settings" menu, Click on "options". Click the "Cube"
tab. Make sure there is a checkbox beside "Use Crawford Rule" and "Use
Doubling Cube".

If those boxes are checked, and you are encountering this issue then it
may be a bug related to HOW you use GNUBG. It may be related to this
bug: https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?35179  . It appears if you analyse
each game after you complete them, and you do so just before the
crawford game, GNUGB loses track of the fact that it was a crawford game
coming up.

My first question is. After you complete a game (inside a match) do you
analyse the game and then continue to the next game? I'd like to know if
you are doing that (then your bug may not be unique). If you are doing
this I'm wondering what would happen if you played entire matches and
then analysed the whole thing at the end? Does the problem go away?

One last question I have. If you go to "Settings"/"Options"/"Game" tab,
can you tell me if you have each of these on or off?
"Start new games immediately"
"Roll the dice Automatically"
"Play forced move automatically"
"Play bearoff moves automatically"

If you have "Start new games immediately" OFF I'd be curious to know if
your problems go away after turning it "ON". This request id a shot in
the dark.

I'll probably have to put this Crawford bug that is already in bug
tracker at a higher priority. At this point I'm trying to discover if
you have a different problem or the same problem as the others.
