Corrected Test Positions

As offered by Hyatt and Newborn in 1997, we obtained their 347 original test positions from <>. To our utter suprise we discovered that the original test positions still contained 4 doubles and 4 other errors in their FEN specifications although they were already used in Hyatt and Newborn's experiment. We cross-checked our discovery by inspecting Hyatt and Newborn's publicly available result file from <>. There, the suspected errors and doubles were indeed visible in the output of CRAFTY (wrong castling rights in position #34, Pawn on 8th rank in position #90, and two black Kings in position #255). We removed the doubles and corrected the errors as described below. Overall, we were left with 343 corrected test positions to conduct our own experiment with.1.9
