Another bug found (by the game's inventors and by Antoine Fourrière) -- Pawns were capturing with their double-move! Also, the Newtons found that Rooks couldn't use the magic carpet squares. These bugs have been fixed, resulting in version 1.2 of the ZRF (check the history).

Whoops! The first posted version (1.0 under history) has a bug -- bare King happens with 3 pieces left! The latest version (1.1 under history) fixes this. Sorry about that.
