1 hour would be quite alarming for me, but I'm very new so I hope such a long wait isn't a regular thing ...
Well, I'm hunkering down and not getting my hopes up that the transaction will be confirmed in the next 24
hours. The hour delay was for it to even show up as unconfirmed!
It's possible it didn't get sent at first, but it'd be odd, because I restarted the client twice with that theory, but it still didn't show up in the list for probably 20 minutes after my second restart. My client shows that the money was sent at 7:08 UTC, while Bitcoin Charts reports the transaction at 8:16 UTC.
Edit: Speak of the devil, it got its first confirmation
while I was writing that. However, it still shows up as 0/unconfirmed in my client. Hrm.
Edit: Now the confirmations show up in the client too. Guess I'm just impatient.
