These were done as the result of searches months ago.

How do I get them out (or restart the whole thing?)

Mac OSX Mavericks (10.9) using the built-in database.

Thanks for any help.

You just have to select them and delete them with the delete key it takes ages with the process using a ton of cpu. I would be nice if you could set an option to delete auctions over a certain number of days/weeks old and it would do them day by day.

I have the same problem. In my case whenever I start JBidWatcher the window says Building Interface and then I get a white window for 10 minutes before I can actually control the program. It looks like its checking every old auction or something? If I dare to click the tab with the auctions that has ended I might as well go to sleep and perhaps the day after I have focus on that window.

Also after a while it goes into 50% CPU and just sits there until I kill it and restart it.

Love JBidWatcher – but these bugs are a bit annoying.

Me too – JBidwatcher is constantly updating old auctions that are not even in the ‘Complete’ tab listing, so i can’t delete them! CPU up to around 30%…

I periodically run a script which resets the database back to an initial state. Basically you just take a base snapshot of the .jbidwatcher folder which has no auctions (clean install and configured with login) and then at any time you can delete the current .jbidwatcher and copy over the base snapshot and restart with a fresh database.

On Windows I run the following commands in a .bat file, easily modifiable for other platforms:

rmdir /S /Q .jbidwatcher
xcopy /S /Y /I .jbidwatcherBackup .jbidwatcher

I haven’t seen this with Apple 10.9
Do you periodically go to FILE, Clear Deleted Tracking, which gets rid of old auction data?
