That's a documented limitation.  From the LIMITATIONS section of the

       FEN  positions  saved by XBoard never include correct information about
       whether castling is legal or how many half-moves have been  made  since
       the  last  irreversible  move, and sometimes may not correctly indicate
       when en passant capture is available.
