Draw?  Why would black not just take the bishop with his pawn on G7?

They will take it. But there is a rule: corner pawn can't become a queen when it is also a king and a bishop if the last square has an opposite color to the bishop's one.

White king will go back and forth g2-h1 and the only thing what the black can do it's to lock it on h1 causing the stalemate.

sneaky - playing to the draw is tougher than it seems - I spent a few minutes looking for a cheapo win, but then saw this.  

 

nice setup, folks!

I agree, its a draw. Black has no way to flush white king away from h1.
