    Imagine my panic when I saw a queen in line with a rook, and it wasn't my turn to move!

    My analyze/real game board FEN is r4rk1/ppp2p1p/5qp1/8/4pPb1/PP2P2P/2PQ2P1/RN2K2R w ...
    My Preview board is: r4rk1/1ppp2p1/1p6/qp6/8/1pPb1PP1/2P2P2/1PQ2P2/RN2K2R ???

    I may have gotten this wrong, but the Preview has the black queen on A rank, directly above an R with no Pawn. I play some unorthodox chess, but I doubt I would have left my queen in such a vulnerable place. Fortunately, the actual game is correct. Just FYI.. game is 250977.

    I'm sorry, but this hasn't been fixed yet. My previews in the pop-up info have the same bug as before. In one game, I have a queen in the wrong column being available to be attacked by a knight (panic), but clicking on it brings the queen in safe territory. (254144) It's like the FEN isn't being translated properly, it's "off" by a column or something.

    I hope this can be fixed. I didn't see anyone else reply to this message, so I guess nobody else has this problem, which I can't figure out, because it seems to be a server-side issue (my guess) rather than a cache or computational issue on the client side.

    I'm not a great player, but why would I intentionally put my black queen there (254144)?
    Look at 257939. We've made 3-4 moves! How could r be on a1 and a2?

    Thanks for checking on this.

    What browser are you using? (Your title says you are a Multi-OS user, so I guess it isn't IE)

    I think the problem is with your client, as it all looks OK on my machine - on a variety of browsers too.

    Anyway, let me know, and I will see what I can do.

    I was using Konqueror on FreeBSD. That's so weird, though... how could the image be displayed differently?

    Well, it isn't an image, its a bit of whacky DHTML I constructed. I can't imagine I will be able to fix it for Konqueror anytime soon, but I may check into it in the future.

    Sorry about that.
