If I understand you correctly you agree now that G6 is the best
move for both players.

I think we could have two problems, the existing one (with
changed answer) and another one in which there is a 3 point
gote added somewhere on the board (with C1 the correct answer).

GNU Go would give the same answer in both tests. One would be
right, the other wrong. But a real combinatatorial endgame engine
would get them both right.
