AgentSmith spent 47 minutes on the 5th move
The game shown below actually began at 1600 UTC. AgentSmith made the first four moves quickly, then spent 47 minutes before playing its 5th move. The game crashed after 16 moves. I logged off and back on again and continued the game to the conclusion.
Can you fix the bug which caused a 47 minute think time on move 5?

It wanted to imitate Kasparov when he played he same position in Sevilla 1987 against Karpov. He spent more than an hour thinking about his 10th move. Karpov played 9...e3 , a novelty at the time. Kasparov managed to get the advantage but blundered and finally lost the game.

.. Fortunately, when "AgentSmith" deliberated for about 70 seconds, on a similar 'early' move, about 9 days ago; I had the 'presence-of-mind' to click-on, my 'View' icon; Followed by, pressing, "Reload"; It worked!--

This problem was related to an Internet connectivity issue and not the chess playing engine. It should not happen on a regular basis.
