Could you please attach a saved game in which the game is reported as unwinnable and the exact move required to return it to a winnable state?

Another example of the same bug.
Saved in the 'not winnable' state.
Move the Queen of hearts from column 2 onto the King of clubs in column 8 to make it display as winnable.
Note that then moving the queen of diamonds from column 4 to column 2 also makes it display as unwinnable.
I have completed this game, so it should be saying that it is winnable.

Also reproduced the same bug in Xubuntu 10.10 64 bit, so it is not just a problem with the windows port.
