Aug-01-12  Abdel Irada: Maybe Black hoped to wring an epic poem or two hundred from the travails of his wandering king.

(Actually, my best guess was that it was a fingerfehler resulting from White's enforcing the touch-move rule after Black mistakenly touched his king rather than his queen. I've been on both sides of such situations, so this seems all too plausible.)

  Sally Simpson: Touch move can be enforced if the move has been posted.
