    Probably your password is wrong, but esniper should print a normal error message instead of a bug report.
    The reason for the bug report is that eBay changed the title of the login failure page. This requires a trivial change in esniper.
    Additionally the format of the the pageName variable has changed (probably some time ago), so esniper uses the page title instead of the page name. I have to think about how to fix this while maintaining compatibility with the old format.

    My password was indeed wrong. Sorry, i should have mentioned that. When i used the correct password, all was well.

      No problem. The information about wrong username or password is in the HTML page that was saved by esniper.
      Anyway the bug report is helpful. A fix for eBay's modified page title is already in CVS.
