You missed an _important_ detail.  This program was running on slower hardware,
and the game time control was game in 3 minutes, no increment.  This makes it
easy to overlook the mate...  This _only_ worked at very fast time controls,
and only against slower hardware.  But once the human figured it out, it was
difficult for _any_ program that could play that fast to handle.  I stopped
losing those games once I got to faster hardware, but left the eval tweak in
for those that run into it...
