WinBoard-4.5.beta.zip: In Seirawan Chess I can introduce an external piece to an empty square, which is against the rules.

Another bug: I cannot introduce an external piece to the corner square at castling.

I played a 3 game match between Fairy-Max and Zillions in Seirawan Chess (approx. 10 sec. per move). Zillions is vastly better and won by 2½-½. In game 2 and 3 Fairy-Max blundered away a piece. This must be a bug in the algorithm. Below is game 3. Notice Zillions's remarkable rook sacrifice at the end.
