I entered a user ID after having left it blank for a while, and the list of auctions I was tracking was wiped out without warning.

Bidwatcher should either retain the old listings, or if not possible, warn the user of what is about to happen.

    I had a look at the FAQ list on Trent\'s site, and it sounds like he considers this a feature, not a bug. I don\'t agree that this is very logical behavior, though. So I will still treat this as a bug.

    My plan is to have Bidwatcher pop up a dialog asking the user whether to keep the current list or clear it.

    Matt Singer has come up with a keep-or-clear dialog box. I\'ve asked him to post it to the Patch Manager.

    Doesn't seem to occur in the latest code.
