Sometimes fails to bid

Reported by dan_A | March 23rd, 2009 @ 08:41 PM | in 2.1 Release

Very eratic sniping. It will snipe 6 times, and then miss 3 times. This has nothing to do with simultaneous sniping or out of sync clocks. The Information shows that our bid was $1.00 while the "completed" pane shows correctly that the snipe was higher than the winning bidders amount. We've had this happen at least 4 times over the last few days... and all around these errors we have successful snipes. In addition, a new development today. The "current" pane has suddenly listed all the sellers as (unknown). I've attached a screen cap illustrating the above.

I was going to send the error log but it only has today's activity. I did notice an odd thing. The log is saying that the currency I'm using is different than what I have stored??? Here's a sample from the log:
