i don't like to upgrade all the time because i prefer to see it verified by others if possible...
 I prefer to keep things as they are if possible.

But twice now i've needed to upgrade else have the 'invalid address' message.

This worries me a bit... It makes me feel like, what would happen if the dev site was shut down at this point and anyone mentioning it silenced.. Generally hard to find that client download... What could be done? Thankfully we have alternative places to discuss

Would be nice to give some more info in the client output to say 'don't panic, this client is just newer than yours'

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

I've never noticed that message... I've ran for a while, and only upgraded to because I felt like it.
