Thanks Adorea for the link, those records were pretty interesting. Please refer to the "Longest until a piece is taken" thread if you want the link.

The only reasonable explanation is that it was a mistake - One player forgot that he had castled, then he castled a second time, and his opponent didn't notice the mistake.
