A mathematical chess problem

It seems that though some problems are hard for engines there is a hope for improvement. As I mentioned this problem was hopeless for Houdini 2.0 on quite slow tablet PC. Since then I switched to an able laptop and more importantly to the brand new 3.0 version of Houdini. This is 60 ELO points stronger than its predecessore but more importanly it has a tactical mode designed specifically to solve such problems. Surprise surprise in tactical mode Houdini 3.0 can solve this problem in less than a minute (at analysis speed of 4000 kN/sec). Grats to Robert Houdart.
