Why in knight and bishop checkmate is impossible make Check mate?

Asked by MOLOC

It's two days that I try to checkmate in practice with knight and bishop and does not give me valid moves to checkmate; considering that it is a practice for beginners who approach the game of chess, because if I follow the moves that gives me the computer only makes me equalize? While in the previous steps before the quest shows me how to checkmate? Do you do it so as not to let the beginners continue in the studio? I say this because if it continues like this it will only get this ... Or is it a bug's error?

Hints are based upon Stockfish, which isn't using tablebases and somehow has difficulty finding the forced checkmate.
