Oct-30-04  clocked: It is reported Karpov scored +8-1=5
This appears to be that one loss. I would guess he lost on time.
Premium Chessgames Member OK thanks.
Feb-28-07  sitzkrieg: terrible to lose with this position.
Mar-01-07  dejavu: I hope that chess database specialists indicate to us when a game is lost on time by for instance (0-1t), as chesswise white is ahead.
Mar-01-07  sitzkrieg: What would have been Karpovs tpr if he had won this game?

  Jim Bartle: Karpov lost on time. Rules were 30 minutes for all moves after 60 in three hours. So Georgiev just kept holding on, and sure enough, Karpov's clock ran out first. (Inside Chess, 31/8/92)

  Jim Bartle: Apparently this game went on for another 15 moves or so. They weren't recorded due to the time scramble in the pre-increment era.
