Do you remember what sort of game that you were playing?- if its Solitaire Bridge then there aren't hand records!

doubler is a GIB right?

That seems to be windows version rented GIB bug. Version there is 21, and this bug was fixed in v27.

Problem was Doubler faces the bug once partner cuebids opening ( it used to be 13-16TP from partner of balancing double, now is 11-16TP and marked as forcing). Then Doubler has no more one-suiter call with points. So in given example 3 would promises 4+ 4+ in majors as initial double of 1 promises something like that. That's why GIB failed in trap and passes just because can't find appropriate call.

At the moment both basic ( web version ones ) and advanced wouldn't pass this for sure. It can't be replicated anymore.

3 comes as direct call ( twice rebiddable ; 15+ total points; forcing to 3N ). Simulation can't prevent this.
