Since my copy of Mighty Lion Chess wasn't handling en passant capture, I updated it to the latest code. After doing so, I was unable to move pieces by clicking on them. This was so both in the code I was testing and in the already-tested stable code. On investigation, I found out that the list of legal moves included the move "zzz,rlbqkbnrpppppppp32PPPPPPPPRLBQKBNR,4". This was screwing things up. Please limit the use of the list of legal moves to properly formatted moves.

In case you need to pass other data to JavaScript, I have just added the command setjsvar. Use this like you would set. It will store values into an associative array keyed to the variable names, and after the program runs, it will write JavaScript variable assignments. It will write numeric values as is, put quotation marks around strings, and JSON encode arrays. It will write the assignments before the legalList assignment, so that you cannot use it to overwrite this variable.
