Thanks for pointing this out; it is indeed a problem.  The latest
development versions are less susceptible to this, but only somewhat.  You
might try gnugo 3.3.23 for a stronger version; alternately, 3.4 should be
out in a couple weeks.

I'm not sure how easy to fix this will be, but it definitely needs
attention; thank you for the report.
