Bug in post-game dialog.

I was observing a tournament game in which white ran out of time while being up (KPPPP vs. K) material, and the post game dialog loaded stating incorrectly that the game was drawn due to insufficient mating material. However, white lost rating points so presumably this doesn't affect anything but the appearance of things.

The result of the game is correct. If your opponent runs out of time, normally you automatically win. However, the rules also say that in order to win on time, you have to have enough material to checkmate with. Since black only had a lone king, he obviously has insufficient mating material, so the game is a draw instead of a win.

When the game is drawn, the higher rated play would typically lose some rating points and the lower rated player would typically gain some rating points.

The results and the rating points for this game are correct.
