Many thanks for personal attack. :D

I am the same way as any person can change. My English is gradually getting better (thanks to this forum and Google translator).
My attitude to Vas is also changing. Previously we allmost became friends, then became enemies, relations today are indifferent. What's strange?
I went through the Rybka code forwards and backwards and took many things.

to Low, or is to BelowNormal sufficient?
It must be difficult to measure if there is a slowing down of Houdini, because of multicore non-reproducibility...

Hi Robert

Here's a bug with Houdini 1.5. I initially installed it using the Fritz 9 GUI and there were no problems. However, I then installed a special version of Fritz 9 for DGT boards. The functionality is still fine but now the engine window keeps freezing. Sometimes it correctly displays the kN/s, the various lines it is considering, depth etc. More commonly, however, it just shows a Depth figure which is far too law (about 6) and nothing else. The Depth figure moves upwards very slowly from 6 to 7 to 8. However, this is only a display problem and not a functionality problem - by the time it is showing Depth 8 the program is really at Depth 25-30.
