    well you could fix the code from the checkout by using this diff:
    Index: auction.c
    ===================================================================
    RCS file: /cvsroot/esniper/esniper/auction.c,v
    retrieving revision 1.116
    diff -r1.116 auction.c

    > if (!value || !end || value > end) {
    >             value = strstr(start, "VALUE=\"");
    >     end = strchr(start, '>');
    >         }
    >

    > static const char BID_CONFIRMATION = "Bid confirmation";
    470c476,477
    < if (!strncmp(pagename, HIGHBID, sizeof(HIGHBID) - 1))
    --
    > if (!strncmp(pagename, HIGHBID, sizeof(HIGHBID) - 1)
    >         || !strncmp(pagename, BID_CONFIRMATION, sizeof(BID_CONFIRMATION) - 1))

    enjoy…works on my box. :)

    The problem with searching for "Bid confirmation" to determine the status of your bid is that this string seems to be always present, even if the bid is not successful (i.e. outbid, reserve not met, etc).

    I have used the esniper for 5-6 different auctions and it has always detected the win/no win condition properly.  I only normally use it for one item at a time, so you are right there might be some larger issue from making this change.
