      This statement might be wrong. All our test games are played
      in a row with text=PGN and PGN=old format and all works fine.

      This is something that does not work in my opinion. The games
      must have been played with the set up mentioned above. To convert
      a complete database (PGN) from new to old format, you need a
      special tool.
