Change handling the special case of a single legal move. Using no searching time in case of a single legal move is not beneficial from a strength point of view, and this special case can be easily removed: STC: LLR: 2.93 (-2.94,2.94) {-1.25,0.25} Total: 22472 W: 2458 L: 2357 D: 17657 Ptnml(0-2): 106, 1733, 7453, 1842, 102 LTC: LLR: 2.94 (-2.94,2.94) {-0.75,0.25} Total: 37880 W: 1736 L: 1682 D: 34462 Ptnml(0-2): 22, 1392, 16057, 1448, 21 The advantage of using the normal time management for a single legal move is that scores reported for that move are reasonable, not searching leads to artifacts during games (see e.g. The disadvantage of using normal time management of a single legal move is that thinking times can be unnaturally long, making it 'painful to watch' in online tournaments. This patch uses normal time management, but caps the used time to 500ms. This should lead to reasonable scores, and be hardly perceptible. closes closes variant of a patch suggested by SFisGOD No functional change.
