Subject: 'Convenient' ChessBase bug handicapping UCI engines

It seems that the ChessBase UCI support contains a rather 'convenient' bug
that severely handicaps UCI engines when playing tournaments under the
ChessBase interface:

An extract from Deep Sjeng's logs:

First game:

< setoption name Hash value 128
Allocated 4194304 hash entries, totalling 134217728 bytes, in shared memory.

All subsequent games:

< setoption name Hash value 1
Allocated 32768 hash entries, totalling 1048576 bytes, in shared memory.

So, they basically disable hashing for UCI engines after the first game.
