Ah yes, that behaves different in gGo and glGo. gGo will enter the 
variation if you play the move again, glGo will create the move as new 
variation. Need to fix glGo, as the gGo behaviour makes more sense. The 
prototype is using the glGo code, so the bad behaviour occurs.

Good point.

Another thing I am pondering about is how to make the tree display 
prettier. The black/white circles are somewhat ugly. I like the CGoban2 
display very much with small stone graphics. I suppose graphics slow 
down the tree significantly, but probably not so overly much it becomes 
unusable. I didn't bother about looking pretty so far, as I concentrated 
on functionality. On the other hand, a pretty display can be done later 
after the tree is in gGo/glGo, as that code will be Java/C++ specific so 
cannot be reused from the prototype anyways.
