Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-games

I setup two normal difficulty cpus to play eachother, and they got stuck in a loop of rook moves up, king moves down, rook moves down, king moves up. This continued for about 10 cycles -- normally this is suppsed to force a draw after 3 moves.

Eventually (after the tenth repitition) the rook computer decided to do something different and then eventually lost.

Reported upstream:

Note that a draw is not automatic - it has to be requested by either player. It appears that GNU Chess assumes this draw is automatic and does not explicitly request it.
