    I can't see in which of your games the problem arises...

    In fact it should work if the criteria re fulfilled:

    * The King is not in check
    * The King doesn't need to travel over a square which is in check
    * neither the King nor the Rook have been moved previously.

    and moving the King in direction of the rook two squares should do the trick.

    one more criteron . .. .if you are castling on the queenside, the path must be clear . . . that is, no pieces on the knight square . . .
