When a game goes past 50 moves, XBoard determines that the game is a draw by
the "50 move rule". In fact, the 50 move rule applies when there have been 50
consecutive moves without a pawn being moved or a piece being captured.
Secondly, XBoard sometimes declares that castling is an illegal move. I have
not been able to discern any pattern as to when this occurs.
