|I observe that 'Caissa' was fooled in a nice puzzle #1061 by Tomas!
After a try 1.Qf6? the applet will think a bit ("This is really tricky..") and then respond 1. -Bc6?? (Correct 1. -Re8+!) and after 2.Qd8# meekly confess "Solved".

So Adum and others involved in programming the applet - some midnight oil maybe?
For detailed discussion on solution, see comments on that puzzle.
