    Did you specify any *Host options? If yes, please try again with the default hosts. If not, please attach the HTML source of the bid history page on ebay.com for the article that was mistakenly counted as won.
    (esniper looks for the text "reserve not met" at a specific place. This might not work on other eBay hosts which use English language and will not work with other languages.)

    I don't have the time to compare the ebay.co.uk and ebay.com versions. As long as ebay.com works I will not analyze the problem, but I do accept patches.

    As auctions with reserve price are rare it might be a bug in esniper or esniper might have to be adapted to eBay's changes in the bid history page.

    In order to check this I need the source code of the bid history page on ebay.com as you see it when you are logged in. There might be slight differences when I'm not logged in or when I did not bid for this article.

    So please log in on ebay.com, save the HTML source of the bid history page http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=321445090281&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2565 and attach the file here. Then I can try to check if this page will be parsed correctly.

     
    • Ah, I didn't realise it accessed the same auctions through the .com.

      Here's the logged in page from ebay.com for that auction result.

    I don't see any attachment. If you attached the file to an e-mail reply it probably was discarded. Use the "Add attachments" link of the bug tracker web interface.
