Ok, so my balance just jumped down.
I look in my bitcoin client and see this:

Yes, those transactions (received by me) went from confirmed to unconfirmed but they're still sorted as if they were confirmed. They are now back in the queue.
Happened right after 2 new blocks within a minute appeared, the 2nd of those containing over 27000 BTC. This looks bad..

wait for some more confirmations (might be the client chooses the longest chain)

I just had a transaction roll back too. I guess it just happens occasionally when 2 blocks are found at almost the same time, and your client initially accepted the "wrong" one.
The massive amount of BTC in that block kind of worries me though, I would like to see the data for the block that got invalidated.

Block chain split?

I wasn't watching when it happened.
Maybe someone else can tell:

SetBestChain: height=123555
AddToWallet xxxxxxxxxx new
AddToWallet xxxxxxxxxx update
SetBestChain: height=123556
REORGANIZE
SetBestChain: height=123557

Then another AddToWallet update right before the block that confirmed it the 2nd time.
The log has no timestamps so I really can't tell if it was 1 or 2 confirmations. Probably just one?

I feel like I should be selling right now because of this thread...

Please do.

Did they go from 1/unconfirmed to 0 or from like 5 and 6?

It'd help to quote block hashes rather than numbers here, for obvious reasons.

I assume you guys are talking about these two blocks:

123561 (1,159940732) 0000000000005ce5229e  05/13/11 03:15:05  tx 93
123562 (1,159983756) 0000000000006680ec6b  05/13/11 03:16:15  tx 9

My node hasn't seen any splits longer than a single block for a long time. You can use the bitcoind -printblocktree command to find out if your node did. I also don't see any references to transactions that failed to connect.

So to recap, if I may:

- most likely no malice or funny business afoot
- two miners found alternate solutions within a short period of time, too short for the entire network to reach consensus
- consensus is restored in the blocks that follow

Agreed?

Yes, this happened last night. Ironically it was the Deepbit pool that got its block thrown out.
