I did a transaction about 2 hours ago and it is staying at 0/unconfirmed, the recipient has no credit showing or even an unconfirmed line... The coins seems to disapeared in the void...
Should I wait is this just a transaction that is going to take exceptionally long?

The transaction will be accepted into a solved block if the person who solves said block chooses to incorporate your transaction into his solution.  That means it needs to propagate across the network.  Is your "Connections" greater than 0?

Yep 4 connections...
I just restarted.
Was the transaction not sent for some reason, is there a way to force the client to rebroadcast the transaction... if there is some glitch/bug?

If your client says 0/unconfirmed then afaik that means it knows that it needs to continue to be broadcast until it gets into a block. I don't know why it would take 2 hours though, maybe someone else knows. Do you normally only have 4 connections?

Brre: Your client will relentlessly broadcast that transaction into infinity until it's accepted.  It's VERY persistent.

A block just probably hasn't been solved in two hours.  The difficulty's up there, I know that.

Yeah, a block is being solved every 10 minutes or less, it shouldn't take 2 hours unless the client has somehow lost connection to the rest of the network.

Are you still downloading the block chain?  If you don't already have all 70,000+ blocks in the block chain, then you transaction won't show up as confirmed until you catch up.

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

If the transaction didn't go out immediately at first, like if you weren't connected at the time, it may take up to 2 hours to resend it.  Long term, it does keep relentlessly sending it.

I'll shorten that length of time in a future version.

You do need to have downloaded the complete block chain (currently 71040 blocks) before you'll see any confirms.  Same with the recipient.

The transaction started confirming about 4 hours afterwards after a couple of restarts... my block chain was updated, what was alarming was that previous transactions keep ticking up, for some reason my client was unable to broadcast that transaction, but was receiving everything OK..

I am on a slow 128k connection though...
