Yahtzee scoring bug

Just found a scoring bug (not sure if it is reproducible) in the latest Yahtzee version. http://jtrotman.tripod.com/yahtzee.html
If you get more than one Yahtzee and score it in one of the Joker sections, then press Options | Help, once you go back to the scoring, the bonus increases by 100. I kept doing this a few times and now my top score is 700+ ;-)
Can it be reproduced?

Ooops

Yes it is reproducible, but only if you play long enough that you actually get two Yahtzees in one game!

Thanks for that, I will try and release a fixed version this week (for those that want it)... In the meantime, no cheating

PS. By the way, my *legitimate* top score is 494, can anyone beat that?

I'm on 606 (4 Yahtzee's) legitimate.

The guy sitting to my left a pathetic 524 on his.

But my girlfriend has managed 627 on hers - we won't talk about that though.

I "only" have 529 (legitimate). But wait, I will try hard....
