Hi H.G.

I thought about trying to find a position with a stalemate by bared K created by a series of forced moves (such as in a problem), but it seemed unnecessary at the time, as even though the 'stalemate' can be prevented in the initial position I gave, there's still the possibility of the 'error' I selected as the only line of play, which at least shows that such a final 'stalemate' could possibly arise by legal moves in a real game (and I've seen some pretty bad legal moves played over the years...).
