The white castling has a specific justification: the move must be by King.

Yes Paul, with fuddled men castling is considered to be only a king move, so that the rook may play after castling. This fact is primordial to motivate 0-0-0 in the problem. Unfortunately it is cooked, 0-0-0 are not needed to get the position. We will try to correct it as soon as possible.
