you can write: log off
in the configuration file "chinito.cfg", but put an Intro after it or you will
get a little surprise after you type first move or command :)

This files are very usefull for debugging but are a trouble for users.

This version of Chinito has been made public too early and it has some horrible
interface bugs. You can play with Arena and make matches without any great
trouble (put on the option "restart the engine after each game"), but if you try
to take back some moves you will sure get a bug, this happen me only with this
version and now it's corrected.
