Am I the only one having problems getting Little Thought 1.04 to use its own book? Looking at the Arena debug log, it appears to load the book successfully, printing out the message:

Successfully loaded opening book file (LittleThought.book)

but it never actually plays any opening moves. I've double checked to make sure the Own Book setting is set to true. This occurs with both the 32 bit and 64 bit compiles, and with other GUIs too (I tried Fritz 10 and Shredder 9).

A late reply, but yes this is a bug in 1.04 :(
