It is legal to move the black 9 on the rightmost pile, but that card is not highlighted.
Version: 0.7.4 (using KDE 4.2.4)
Sometimes while playing spider (spider2, actually) I ask for hints and notice that not all the cards which can legally be moved are highlighted.
Steps to Reproduce:
Play another game, ask for hints, and check results.
The attached image shows a game where the mistake shows up in the initial layout of the cards. If you can start that particular game, 1202737896, you might (?) see the error right away. Sorry, but I did not think to save that particular game to send; I just got the screen shot.
A few cards which can be legally be moved are not highlighted. This is frequent enough to be noticed but is still rare.
All cards which can legally be moved are highlighted.
OS: Linux (i686) release 18.104.22.168-smp
I can confirm this with KDE SC 4.5.3, sometimes possible moves are not proposed. Or is this a feature that spider "thinks" those move is not good and makes the game unwinnable?

OK, between the above and the 15 votes for this bug, how do we get this bug changed to CONFIRMED? This web page is not letting me make that change.
Speaking of CONFIRMED, I apologize that I did not make my original note clear enough. Starting Spider 2 with "deal number" 1202737896 and then asking for hints ALWAYS shows an example of the bug, ie the rightmost face-up card, a black 9, is not highlighted tho it should be highlighted because it can obviously go on the black 10. It's a hard error which happens all the time right at the beginning of a game, and that should make it easy to find the bug.

If that was supposed to be the case then there would be another bug to report. In one of my examples the card which was supposed to be highlighted but was not highlighted turned out to be the winning move at that point in the game. Besides, why highlight only winning moves? That would take all the fun away!
