Very interesting! Do you have any data on H0 with GNU Go playing white? I 
seem to recall that it did worse with white than black.

And are you by any chance using the fuseki db patches I posted back in
November / December? It's not been added, I believe due to concerns about
how much disk space it will occupy, but the additional variability should
be particularly important for running lots of games for testing and
statistics. For me, this was in fact the main point of the new db.
