Set Jbid to bid on a series of auctions (over 30) that ended in relatively rapid sequence (most were 6s-30s apart), only to have it fail to enter a bid in roughly 60% of the bids. Every time there was a successful auction bid, the entire system went to update the auctions, which meant that the system was otherwise engaged instead of submitting the bid (according to the activity line at the bottom of the program window) that had been preset as a snipe. I was unable to find a toggle to prevent the auto-update; extending the snipe time from 10 seconds (cable connection) to 30 still did not provide adequate change in results. Stopping it manually did not appear to change the result. Suggestions?
