This is worrying to me, as Green Light thinks it finds another mate in 7, which
begins with e8=Q+

As I understand it Chest finds all the mates, doesn't it?

Here is a snippet of GLC's analysis (v2.14-pr7, hash 48M, Duron 880MHz):

  8  26.25 320.983  16660k  Bd1 Bd2+ Qxd2 Rxc6 Qh2+ Kg6 e8=Q+ Bf7 Qxh7+ Kxh7
                              g8=Q+ Bxg8 Qxg8+ Kh6 Nxf5+ Kh5 Qxg5#
  8  51.62 320.987  38611k  e8=Q+ Bf7 Qxg2 Rxc6 Qg4+ Kg6 Qxf5+ Kh5 Qexf7+ Rg6
