I have never seen this before and I don't understand what's going on.  I received a payment almost exactly 3 hours ago as of now.  My Bitcoin client says it's up to date, in sync and connected to 15 active connections.  Yet this payment received 3 hours ago says it has zero confirmations.  How can this be?  How can I fix it?

My debug window says that the last block I got is 266592 which agrees with what blockchain.info is swaying the latest block is right now.

Was a sufficient fee included with the transaction? If not, it can take some time before it gets confirmed.

Post the transaction-ID and/or a link to the transaction on blockchain.info so we have some more details.

Several possibilities. Need more information to assist.

Can you either post the transactionID or the receiving address?

I actually posted my response in another thread by accident.  It was almost certainly due to no fees.

Almost?

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.

He made a dust transaction with no fee.  It has been broadcasted to the network.  Now he just needs to wait a few weeks for it to be picked up by a blockfinder who is allowing free dust transactions.

He has another thread with him complaining about the fee nag screen in Bitcoin-QT.

And in your own words from another thread:

If a person specifies a fee lower than what the market will bear, tough shit for them.  They can raise it or not do business.
