Coming back to these discussions:

Why not just to update JBidWatcher to show the eBay’s CAPCHA picture to user and prompt him/her for proper input?
Then the sesson will be established and JBidwatcher will start working properly.
If eBay will ask more CAPCHA during session the same dialog should be showm with an alartm sound – to make user aware.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks

Let me also add that in my case eBay does not remove the CAPTCHA after one-two days
But when I log in with a browser it does not show me any CAPTCHA, so could there be any different reason for ‘Not logged in’?

If you don’t get the “CAPCHA” when you login normally then the problem lies elsewhere. Have you made sure that the “Firewall” information is filled in correctly in the Configuration file? Does the “Test Login” report an error?

AFAIK as far as I see this is because of CAPTCHA. Here is what log says:

I agree this is desperately needed! I have to keep alternating E-bay Profiles because of these darn “CAPTCHAS”. I would bet if a window showing the captcha image and with an input box to enter the digits, this would solve the problem. I hate E-bay some times :(
