Default Suggestion for Crafty

I did post a variation on this suggestion a while ago and received one reply
but I couldn't get it to work so here goes again:

I use Crafty as an opponent in endgames (eg KNNvKP from Silman's 'Essential
Chess Endings'). Unfortunately it often resigns before I get a chance to
play the endings out. What I mean by this is that just because it can see
the mate doesn't mean that I can. It would be useful to be able to toggle
Resign On/Off.

cheers
