Many Faces takes the ko, but with only 24% win rate.  It expects the ko
threat at F10, which can’t be ignored.

Yes, this is the one where bonobot resigned in (I believe) a clearly won
position. Take the ko, ignore one threat, play M12, ignore a 2nd "free
move", play L10 and take the L9 stones, finally respond to black's two free
moves, and I believe bonobot was still clearly ahead. Dan-level players
seemed to be of the same opinion. In any event, it was certainly playable,
not the best time to resign. 

I'd be interested if dan-level players read something different; I'm not in
that league.

In any case, it looks like a great program! I wish you every success in
repairing these flaws and making still more progress. 

I'm also interested in seeing how well bonobot does with longer time
