Hi,

i'm using esniper 0.27.0. If I bid on some article i get:

$ esniper -d -s now file-with-one-item
Auction ............: article description
Time remaining: 7 hours 35 mins 2 secs (27302 seconds)
End time: 13/10/2012 17:55:27
Currently: 25.01 (your maximum bid: 25.51)
# of bids: 8
High bidder: .***. (NOT ..me..)

Auction ............: Bidding...

Auction ............: Post-bid info:
Auction ............: article description
Time remaining: 7 hours 34 mins 59 secs (27299 seconds)
End time: 13/10/2012 17:55:28
Currently: 25.51 (your maximum bid: 25.51)
# of bids: 9
High bidder: ..me..!!!

unknown outcome, assume that you have won 1 items

If i'm not the highest bidder I get also the message "unkown outcome". Esniper does not generate any *.bug.html. I can provide the debug log by mail.

Kind regards,

Sebastian

    Probably ebay has changed the bid history page. This will need some analysis.

    I think I mainly need more spare time ;-)

    A similar problem has been fixed in CVS now. Please try latest version from CVS.

    Unfortunately the change does not fix my problem. :-(

    I tested the bid history parser with pages resunting from ended auctions. You instructed esniper to bid early on auctions that win ennd in several hours or days.
    It might be possible to recognize the case when you have been outbid immediately, but I don't see why I should make an effort to fix this.

    What is the purpose of using esniper to bid long before the auction ends?

    Feel free to send a patch.

    I realize, I tricked myself. Some day sniping fails, so I tried manual bidding to very the bid process. I suspected the message above as the reason.. - mistakenly. Thanks for your time!
