I don't think you ever could.  Though that would be a nice feature to add.

RE: changing the confusing transaction fee message:  good idea, and yes, "we" can.

How about:

This transaction requires a transaction fee of at least 0.0N because of its amount, complexity, or use of recently received funds


I don't want to use the word "recommend", because the GUI doesn't let you try to send them without a fee.


Gavin, i don't doubt your good intentions when requiring 0.01 fee, but this produces serious issues currently in my Bitcoin trading.

Meaningly, when i tried to transfer about 9 bitcoins again after receiving 7 confirmations, i still got the "0.01 fee required because of blah blah" message. When i downgrade to 0.3.20, it does not produce this error.

So what is the point of this feature if somebody can "fix it" just by downgrading to a slightly lower version ?

This is the receiving address I am talking about:

http://blockexplorer.com/address/1LBK2EespTDpcxnR1J4utP9tBtbA6X5SF9

As you can see, i received 9.95 bitcoins on it, and then i was unable to push the bitcoins further even though i had 7 confirmations.

Downgrading does not "fix" it.  The earlier version would broadcast the transaction, and then it would (most likely) either sit in the network with 0 confirmations for half a day or sit on your machine with 0 confirmations for a few hours, until it aged enough to graduate from the 'very low priority' category.

The rule of thumb is 1 BTC you just received needs 144 confirmations (1 day) before it is considered 'normal priority.'  10 bitcoins requires 1/10'th that-- 15 confirmations would do it.

Given the recent rise in bitcoin value, I think it makes sense to modify that formula so 1 BTC takes (perhaps) 10 confirmations to be considered 'not likely to be spam'.

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

Wouldn't this be futile unless you could also could copy in the private key that goes with that address?

Perhaps the theory is correct, but the practice confirms you are wrong.

The 9.95 was sent by me about 1 hour after receiving it using 0.3.20 version and later I got 3 confirmations after about 45 minutes.

Perhaps the criteria for requiring transaction fees are wrong ? Yes, i am absolutely certain we got 3 confirmations and i think that 45 minutes is quickly enough, isn't it ? So why require a fee ?

EDIT:
Just saw the issue on github, should've looked there first Smiley

OLD:
Same here.

Starting the client, it uses some cycles, but gives no kind of output. No gui and nothing on stdout/err. Maybe wxwidgets 2.9 doesn't like Unity?

I've tried with both 0.3.19 and *.21.

Can someone try without Unity?
