What is going on with these two Alice Chess logs?

Both of them have the same list of moves, and these moves include several instances of the same banned move. These logs should not exist like this unless someone handwrote and uploaded them. I could not duplicate them myself through the normal means of playing the game. I copied the movelist to another log up until the last legal move, then tried to move the Knight from g8. When I tried the partial move that got recorded, it caught it before I could send the move. When I tried each legal move available to the piece, it handled it without any problem. When I tried a move directly to the other board, it stopped me. So, what happened here? How did these two logs with banned moves in the moveslist come to be?
