I think moves with 0.01/1 0 and -0.01/1 0 are book moves.

If it's true this means it's a GUI bug or an engine bug.
I'll focus more cautiously on these games.

Did someone heard about such a Bug?

Ulysses is right, Hiarcs is using its book as the moves 0.00/1 indicate. This is because Hiarcs uses a bin book, which cannot be switched off the way you did it. So basically Hiarcs was allowed to play with its book in this match and Rybka wasn't :-).

Probably you'll have to rename the Hiarcs bin-book when you want to play predefined opening lines.

yes you probably got it right.
I'll make new tests again under the same conditions.

He just needs to set book to OFF on the engine options.
