  I have just pushed out 9.01, fixing a major bug of Pachi happily
throwing assertion failures in handicap games. It was caused by a bug
in the new linear adaptive dynamic komi.

  (Also, it seems that far too often, Pachi refuses to mark any stones
dead, but I did not have the time to investigate.)
