ice v0.2 Build 1085 - maintenance release

Soon after the release of iCE 0.2 I received feedback that the engine has problems on certain systems, mainly 64 bit operating systems. While it is a Win32 compile and only tested on Win32 systems I still want it to run on 64 bit systems too.

So I compiled a maintenance release of it that addresses some potential problems that let iCE fail on certain systems. If you experience problems with the old one, give the new one a try. Strength of both 0.2 versions is almost identical as no change to eval or search was made.

If the new one still fails for you I welcome feedback (with the setup you are using meaning CPU type, OS and Chess GUI and what settings you set for iCE to play). I will have a look at it.
