Despite my unintentionally erroneous, and therefore misleading hint,Thomas
J. McElmurry correctly solved the DX 7 problem by proving White can force
a draw.  Black can only win if White plays inferior moves.  The solution
will be posted tomorrow evening.  So, I find it interesting that I failed
to solve my own problem  :(  .  For those who still
want to solve problem 7, the question should be:

How can White force a draw?
Note that the position will be reduced to King, Crab, and Spider versus
King and Spider because White cannot prevent the loss of his pawn.
