Unknown error sniping on...

Reported by Dave Burton | August 1st, 2016 @ 02:31 PM | in 2.1 Release

Today I set up a snipe on an auction, and someone else out-sniped me.

That's fine, but what is interesting is that jbidwatcher flashed an error message in the lower-right corner of the Windows 10 Desktop:

"Unknown error sniping on..."

So I displayed the log, and found several errors recorded.

The first was this one, a couple of minutes before the snipe attempt:

Mon Aug 01 17:06:39 EDT 2016: Getting the sign in cookie for ebay.com Mon Aug 01 17:06:39 EDT 2016: Parsing URL https://signin.ebay.com/ws2/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn
Mon Aug 01 17:06:40 EDT 2016: Potential quote error!

Then, after the unsuccessful snipe attempt, there was this series of messages:

Mon Aug 01 17:08:39 EDT 2016: 262545126428 (Samsung 16GB (4x4gb) 2RX8 DDR3 1333MHz PC3-10600U DIMM Intel RAM Desktop memory) - Loading post-bid data.

'Show Last Error' from context menu to see the failure page from the post-bid page.

(BTW, I don't know what "context menu" it's talking about, and I don't know of any "Show Last Error" option in jbidwatcher.)

Note that this is not a severe problem. I didn't miss out on any auctions. (I think my bid was refused by eBay, because it was too low.) But I thought you might want to know about it, Morgan.
