I requested a handful of takebacks during the game, so I'm wondering if this behavior is perhaps intentional (being awarded a draw instead of a win if you used takebacks). Game for reference: http://en.lichess.org/Pb7tjD7oWABM

In addition to FireBreathingDragon's answer, it's also worth noting that Stockfish will never resign, regardless of circumstances, though it may play for a draw.

Not a bug, of course stockfish didn't want to resign there.

Also, I think that is supposed to be a theoretical draw.
