That's what is really strange here, all of our policies are open ended.  Library X at library <blank>, for all users.

Only for very specific details do we set that specific of a rule.  There are a set of rules for each libraries that have been working at all locations until this most recent addition.

It sound to me like your matchpoints for circulation are too specific.  
You probably have matchpoints for library X items at library X and library Y items at library Y, but not library Y items at library X or vice versa.

You'll need to find out whose rules should apply and add or modify the appropriate entries.

You'll find these in the staff client from the Admin Menu => Local Administration => Circulation Policies.
