Strange failure.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Box-20-Sony-Lto5-Linear-Tape-Open-1-5tb-LTX1500G-/172219498267
This auction was supposed to end at May 30, 2016 , 4:23PM (16:23)

This is what I see in the log:

Mon May 30 16:00:30 PDT 2016: 172219498267 (Box of 20 Sony Lto5 Linear Tape Open 1.5tb LTX1500G) – Cancelling snipe, auction is reported as ended.

I wonder if jBidwatcher was confused by what eBay sent back at 16:00, since there is no evidence that the action ended earily.

My jBidwatcher just managed to snipe a different item.

Is there a way to have jBidwatcher write out the HTML it sees when something strange happens? (eg auction ended unexpectedly)

I reported the early auction-reported-as-ended bug a while ago… I’m afraid our coder has gotten overwhelmed and stopped fixing anything. :(

It’s cost me three items in the last two days…

Does jBidwatcher store the HTML it parses when it detects the auction has ended?

If it did that, the resulting HTML could be valuable for debugging.
