  MissScarlett: Harding's Blackburne biography, p.76:

<36.Rd4 D.S.Z. explained here that White, to gain time, just moved his Rook between d4 and d2 until eventually he tried to play for a win by 44.Rd3. An incorrect continuation is seen in some databases, which omit the repetitions at this point: 36.Rd3 Rxa4 [...] 51.Ke6 Re3+ 1/2-1/2.>

Note that Rosenthal's Rook correspondingly oscillated between c2 and c4.
