Generally I love the program.  Once all of the bugs are sorted out it will
certainly be an excellent environment for running and testing engine as well as
general chess analysis.  However, I have also found the following bugs:

1 Loads of bugs when loading positions from EPD files including, missplaced
pieces, freezing board and general eratic behaviour.  The workaround is to
convert EPD files to ChessBase CBF files that perform faultlessly.

2 Comes out of book even when the Opening book window shows a book move.  This
is also prevelant in Engine Matches when one player will be in book for much
longer than the other, even though they are using the same book.

3 Engine Matches seem to freeze a couple of moves after each is out of book.
This was using WChess 2000 and Genius 6.  This was a big dissappointment as I
wanted to play quite a few games to test the new WChess 2000 engine.

4 Minor bug - I once noticed that WChess 2000 diplayed Kg1 as part of the main
line, insteed of O-O.  Extremely minor but worth fixing

5 Maximizing the board showed 'strange' boxes round each square making it
unreadable.  Could be my graphics card STB TNT.

6 Couldn't seem to analyse an EPD file.  I had loads of trouble with EPD files
in general.
