Well, I might misundertand some things, but
shows this :

K3 : B dragon size 6 (6.92), genus 0, half eyes 0, escape factor 0, crude
status dead, status dead, moyo size pre owl 0, moyo size post owl 0, moyo
territory value 0.00, safety dead, weakness 1.00, owl status dead
... neighbors L5 M1
... adjacent worm M1 is lunch

It seems GNU Go thinks it's dead.

It would help I guess, but I'm not sure it would solve the problem I'm
looking into.
