When browsing a subvariation, ChessX shows the ECO code of the main line. The result is that one can have -for instance- a Caro-Kann showing on the board and "B20 Sicilian Defence" writen two lines below. This might be annoying, especially if the GameText window is closed (since in this case the main line is not immediately evident).

I would suggest having both the possibilities (showing ECO of the main line *or* of the subvariation) available as optional (mutually exclusive), with "when browsing a subvariation show ECO of the main line" inactive as default.

    There was a quick discussion on the list and we are still not sure
    if ECO should match game or current position.

    I am not sure about the best solution either, I was basically suggesting to give users the possibility to choose what they like, since it is one of a few things that are always clearly shown on the main window.

    I will prefer to use one option only. Can you check how this works in CB?
