What exactly were you doing? Was this the first game you tried after starting XBoard,
and did you start playing immediately? Was a -lgf argument in any way involved?

In most cases I tried XBoard accepted the castling without problem. (e.g. when I
entered the moves by hand, or pasted the game into XBoard with the Edit menu).
But finally I found out that when I clicked the PGN file to automatically start XBoard,
it would refuse the castling. In fact there would be no castling rights from the very
first move of the game. Starting with 'xboard -lgf bug.pgn' would cause the same
effect. I did trace the bug that caused that, but I am not sure it would be the same
as that plagued you.

Dear maintainers,

in the final position in the attached PGN xboard considers 14...0-0-0
illegal, which it should not.

version: xboard 4.7.3 from ubuntu 14.04 package xboard:4.7.3-1 (amd64).
