After 1 (2) 3 (pass), GIB shows the same definition for both 3 and 4: 5+ , 11-21 HCP, 12-22 total points. I've seen GIB make each bid at different times, but there has to a be a much better way to define the bids.

This is not uncommon. I haven't kept track but this occurs on other auctions too.

I'm glad to finally be able to say this. This problem is corrected in the next version, which I believe is being released soon. All the bids after a cuebid-raise will be more clearly and logically defined.
Please let me know about any questions or interest or bug reports about GIB.

Well, the definitions have definitely changed in the new version of GIB. It seems not very carefully however; a bid of 3NT by the opener in the above sequence shows exactly 3 spades (yes, by the person opening 1).

Can you show an example hand with this auction that shows the definition?
