    The question is: Is in a) Qe2[+wQd1,+bRe8] a legal move? It all depends on the order of applying the fairy conditions: First Haan, then anticirce: Illegal; first anticirce, then Haan: Legal.

    Formally speaking, in the combination Haan+Anticirce “mate from rebirth square” by Queen or Bishop is impossible.
    The piece is not allowed to return back after tentative capture of black King.
    So, this is the reason the latest Popeye do not see any solution, I think.

    The combination of Haan+Anticirce+Antiandernach is self-locking for queen or bishop mates.
