I FINALLY figured out what was breaking the ‘Buy’ operation. It took for*EVER*, and it was one of five ‘top tier’ bugs that are holding back the next release.

The top tier of bugs are:

  1. Sniping is broken in 2.1pre1.
    this obviously needs to get fixed before a release, but I believe I know what’s wrong
  2. ‘Buy’ is broken in 2.0.1 and 2.1pre1.
    this has been driving me crazy for weeks
  3. Multisniping bids on multiple items for some users in 2.0.1.
    I believe I have a fix, but it’s hard to test
  4. JBidwatcher isn’t moving resurrected auctions back to ‘current’.
  5. Snipe failure due to underbids aren’t recognized correctly.

I believe I’ve finally broken #2, the hardest of them. The sense of relief is amazing.

A new release sounds good to me Morgan
JBid now makes my pc run so slowly I only turn it on when I have to. Trouble is I forget and never bid on stuff that goes for a song !
Won 2 lots of CDs where the Multisnipe won them both
I reckon we would all be happy with a relase with some bugs fixed rather than wait for all of them – by which time Ebay might have moved the goalposts again
