Ah!  Yes, that makes perfect sense now that you point that out.  I think
this behavior (at least in this case) is better, since the original bug
report was about the information loss from having gnubg crash in the
middle of a long match, and this avoids the crash.

Not displaying the dialog makes sense to me.  I agree that people probably
aren't looking for this information; the bug reporter ran into it by
