i hadn't backed up my wallet for a while and just noticed that there is now a wallet.dat and a wallet.dat.rewrite in my Bitcoin folder.  which is the real private key wallet that needs to be backed up?

I believe .rewrite is the old wallet, which ideally should be "rewritten" over since it may hold unencrypted private keys as a result of a bug in the 0.4 wallet encryption code. Ideally though if you used the built in encryption prior to 0.5 you should transfer your coins to a new wallet in case the old one has leaked.

thats a good pt.  i'm moving them now....

wallet.dat

wallet.dat.rewrite SHOULD be automatically removed as part of the upgrade-to-0.5 process; I don't know why it isn't in some cases-- and, frankly, I would much rather spend time getting really, truly secure wallet solutions working.

RE: bitcoin version 0.4 starting up on your machine:

You should run the old bitcoin, un-check the "start on windows system startup", then exit.
Then remove it using the Add/Remove Programs control panel doo-hickey (did that move again in Vista?).  You should see both "bitcoin" (the old 0.4) and "bitcoin-qt" (the new 0.5).

... all of which is, I know, annoying and painful.  Again, frankly, I'm more interested in spending time on the very-highest-priority issues rather than making every beta release upgrade completely smooth in all cases.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

There is something wrong.
I have copy the old 0.5 wallet to 0.5.1 and transfer bitcoins to my mt.gox account,but today there is a strange address show in my bitcoin0.5.1:1FvEPVsHmX3TjwUn4PPpwTdHcTA8BQSATE.
It show I transfer 2.12027407 BTC to that address.But I swear I haven't do it.
What's wrong with it?

I'm on Ubuntu subscribed to the Matt Corallo PPA but so far have seen no 0.5.1 update come down. Is that delayed or something wrong why it's not being propagated?
Thx.

Edit: I spoke too soon. A few minutes after posting the update manager showed it was coming. I guess the squeaky wheel gets the grease here. Is it normal to take 3-4 days to get recognized?

For what it's worth; Subscribing to the same PPA an Ubuntu 11.10 machine I have updated bitcoind along with all my other updates. Totally sweet. Cheesy The version 10.10 computer im on right now is not cooperating. Smiley (I'm still happy though)
