Time ran out but insufficient material to mate - sufficient material, actually!

Hi all,

I do not blame the result (I know, it is just a funny game!), but I think it is sort of bug to fix.

In that party


It was white bishop against two black pawns and black were out of time.

I think, it is not draw, but white's victory because it is possible to construct position where white mates black, for example:


King g3, bishop f1


King h1, horse g1

White moves Bg2x

If it was white horse, it would be another winning position:


King h3, horse e2


King h1, bishop g1

White moves horse g3 mate as well
