Mates in more than 4 moves

I've added hundreds of new checkmate problems with more than 4 moves. I hope this time I've calculated the right number of moves! :-)

I've fixed now a bug that was freezing the applet during same checkmate problems.

I just had another case of solving a 'mate in 6' in 5 moves, and I'm not gaining any points, or being moved to the next problem.

I can't see the number of the problem until I've 'solved' it. White has a K+Q and Black has a K+R. The pieces are in the lower right hand corner of the board. W- Ke2 Qg6 B- Kh3 Rh1.

It's the mate number 35199 but Stockfish 2.1.1 doesn't find any mate in 5 moves.

anyway I've let you pass to the next problem without losing points.

I didn't even play the best move, 1 Qg5 instead of 1 Qh5+, but the engine played the inferior 1...Kh2, and I mated in 4 more moves.

I've fixed this bug. Now if the engine play an inferior line and let you mate in less then the expected numer of move the solution is correctly evaluated.
