Here's the head-scratcher that I hope one of you can help me with:

I restored a small savings wallet.cat file and opened the client. I waited for the blockchain to update and that went fine - the blockchain is now up to date. Here's the problem: the client shows a zero balance yet when I search the receiving address in BlockExplorer it still shows my balance at that address. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks,
Trader Steve

Just to double check, what does it say for "Blocks" on the lower right?

Do your addresses show up if you open the Address Book?

Are you sure you're working from a recent backup (less than 100 transactions performed)?

Could you let me know your address so I can have a look in blockexplorer to see if there's anything weird?  You can PM me if you don't want to post it publicly.
