That command line is an example of disabling many of Pachi's features,
so it gives an unusually weak player; I expect that has something to do
with it (sometimes they seem to be passing before all the territory is

If you add ',pass_all_alive' to the end of the command line, they'll
play the game out until nearly all the dead stones are off the board;
that should help them agree on the score.
