<chessbase> gives an incorrect result "1-0"

Skjoldager and Nielsen's translation of Nimzo's notes on p.277:

Nimzowitsch writes what he thought and did after playing the final move 24.Ke2, which he regards to be a mistake. He says he should have played 24.Kd3:

"I looked at my opponent, saw his peaceful face and then 'dared' to address the question whether he, as indicated by his last moves, would be satisfied with a draw? Yes, he was satisfied and a draw was agreed, since I did not want my opponent to inflict any further damage on me after having experienced the first shakings of my 'master equilibrium.' After 24.Kd3 Qf4 25.Bc5 White probably still has the upper hand. 1/2-1/2"

Jan-23-20  Atking: <jessicafisherqueen> Always I appreciate your historical notes. Thanks! About the game I suspect Nimzowitsch was playing against himself with some ghost in mind. 15.Bg3 Qh3 16.Ne2 Ngxh2 17.Nf4 and then Kg2 adding Rh1 for the defense For if Qh6 18.Kg2 g5 19.Rh1 gxf4 20.Bxh2 Rg8+ 21.Kxf3 Qh3+ 22.Bg3 eccetera
