    Got this working - the main thing is to throughly change the config file so that
    historyHost =
    prebidHost =
    bidHost =
    loginHost =
    myeBayHost =
    are all changed. works fine.

    For everyone's information, I am in the UK and adding this config fixed a login problem that began occurring recently.

    The debug was:

    Automated esniper bug report.
    esniper version 2.19.0
    libcurl/7.15.5 OpenSSL/0.9.8b zlib/1.2.3 libidn/0.6.5
    Error encountered in function ebayLogin in auction.c line 415
    auction = XXX, price = XXX, remain = 0
    latency = 0, result = -1, error = 19
    buf = 0x10d95120, size = 5125, read = 0x10d95120
    time = 1254712972, offset = 0
    pageinfo is NULL

    which seems to be happening for a lot of people at the moment.

    Maybe even non-UK users can try this as a temporary solution for the current login problems. But ebay may eventually implement the behavior of the US site on all international pages.

    Update: Not convinced that my change above actually solved the issue. It turns out I had an oddly flakey ADSL line due to a physical problem on the wire at the time, so my money now is simply on packet loss at a 'bad' time in the message exchange causing an odd exception.

    Haven't seen it since my line was re-wired.
