Indeed.  Lots of times, I have seen some tools find games from Kasparov playing
Morphy or something of that nature.  How can this be?  Looking at the original
PGN we will see
[white "Kasparov Saitek"]
[black "Morphy 2.05"]

or something of that nature.  This is a made up example, but it does happen all
the time.

So computer programs named after super GMs are a bloody nuisance.
