So did I at first glance, until I tested further. The reason is it can correct itself automatically if you quit iGame, then reopen it and rescan!

It goes like this (one WHDLoad game Bloodwych in the repository as an example )
  • First fresh scan result: Bloodwych
  • Second scan result (either by immediately rescanning OR closing down iGame, then reopening it and scanning): Bloodwych Alt

Then, the rules change:
  • Third scan result (immediately rescanning, without closing down iGame): Bloodwych Alt Alt
  • Third scan result (closing down iGame, then reopening and scanning): Bloodwych (iGame has corrected the Alt error)
  • Forth scan result (immediately rescanning, without closing down iGame): Bloodwych Alt Alt Alt
  • Forth scan result (closing down iGame, then reopening and scanning): Bloodwych Alt

That's what makes it hard to spot. If you close iGame between scans, the Alt will appear and disappear.
