I have a transaction that is sitting in limbo since 6/19. It is unconfirmed and not showing in the blockexplorer. I have previously sent payments to this address, so I am not sure why this is happening. I have deleted the blockchain and launched bitcoin with the -rescan option, but no change. Is there anyway to get this confirmed or delete the send transaction?

similar thing happened to me and several others with a payment from deepbit. Took nearly 19 hours for it to finally come through, but it did with no work being done. AFAIK you just got to wait.

Me too, same thing, I have Four payments sitting in limbo.  I'll copy my message over to this thread!

I now have FOUR transactions that are hung, bitcoin is apparently unaware of them because they haven't been announced, or it is ignoring them.  The block explorer does not show these transactions having been processed either.  That's 40 bitcents in limbo now, plus the processing fees.  What do I do?  Is there a way to find out what is going on?!  I really wish there was a way to save the transaction history as a spreadsheet, I can't even copy/paste the entries to something else. Sad  The bitcoin application is not accurately calculating the balance.  The unconfirmed, limbo, payments have all been deducted from the balance, even though the network still refuses to do anything with them!



I'm seeing a lot of these

socket recv error 10054  disconnecting node
but I think that's because I'm using PeerBlock, I've noticed it blocks a Lot of bitcoin connections.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but, I did find errors in the debug.log, I see a LOT of these.

Quote
ERROR: ConnectInputs() : 91960a43a6 mapTransactions prev not found 0816ff100f
ERROR: AcceptToMemoryPool() : ConnectInputs failed 91960a43a6
storing orphan tx 91960a43a6

Is there a way to see a live updating console of the debug.log file?  I just want to see the newest entries as they get written, not load the whole file over and over again in a text editor.

I guess you want more information.

http://blockexplorer.com/address/1DYJpoPYGE1DCYoxiwp2RZzg4RxNGMcsi2 shows nothing happening on 2011-06-20.
http://blockexplorer.com/address/1EXcrEtjeGYemVVBxxLcaWckKMD5hdHanP also shows nothing happening on 2011-06-20.
http://blockexplorer.com/address/1CYaXVpZZLJimrwFyMykdYx6KP5iwMKFbH also shows nothing happening on 2011-06-20.

And the really really old supposedly double spent one that is still hanging around on my bitcoin client, http://blockexplorer.com/address/1KWCfAWnxCreasVqBWRgT5aQ1zeWsUorkb, has a totally empty ledger. How was it double spent again? I don't know, but I do know all four of these happened while I was playing around with Bitcoin Darts. I think I will stop playing with it.

http://bitcoincharts.com/bitcoin/ shows nothing about any of these transactions, unless searching for them by the send to address is not the way to look them up on that page.  Do you want me to upload my Entire debug.log file somewhere, would that help?  I wish I could see more info about announcements, or attempts to announce, and what nodes are accepting announcements and what nodes are not.  Is there some way I can kickstart stalled announcements?!

I have read firewall blocking software can prevent you from correctly accessing the network. I would try disabling PeerBlock and see if that helps it.

By the way, what version of the client are you using? You have 50 connects. The most I ever get is 8. I have read this might be a limitation of the new client. Perhaps your problem is using an older client?

It is the newest version of the bitcoin client for windows, I downloaded and installed it before those last three hung transactions, but after the oldest one.  As for PeerBlock, yes, I've noticed it blocking a great many bitcoin connections, but always to networks known to be running Anti-Peer to Peer software.  But, anyway, it's disabled right now, I'll if that helps, I will let bitcoin run for a few days without Peerblock doing anything at all.  The firewall is set to not block bitcoin, and the router has a port forwarded, so everything should be just peachy.
