Dunno about your query. Still researching... You should e-mail Popov!
Here is a no-brainer computers can't solve. Well, no contradiction!

It's funny I can understand a 1283 study on his site, better than the translations into English there!
Also I particularly like mates of the king in a corner by a knight, when the king is behind a pawn of his own colour: the site seemingly features the first one of these too, from 1837. That was good to see.
