Suggestions and Ideas

I would suggest not watching the bidding by watching Gixen though.
That is a good point. Gixen is not designed for auction management: it is designed for placing bids. If you want to watch Gixen do its work, you should call up the auction in eBay. However, unless you had Gixen's edit mode open, I can't see how refreshing would interfere with a bid. In any case, your recommendation to not use Gixen to watch the bidding is a good one.

Post subject: Gixen rocks!
I did that too! (logged in to an item on eBay)
Gixen generally works great! A terrific service!
Certainly, better than being called away just as an auction is about to end or forgetting to watch it.
I would suggest not watching the bidding by watching Gixen though. I had a few items listed and it was easiest to see them the complete list on Gixen, that way I could see what I had set as the maximum bid, what won, etc. One auction was about to end, so I refreshed a couple of times to see how it was going. Apparently this caused Gixen to think I was modifying the bid and it was submitted too late, even though I had previously set the amount, hours or days before the auction end. My maximum bid was about $20 more than what won the item. At least this seems to be what happened. I would be curious as to whether my impression is correct. There was a message that suggested this was the case. Perhaps that program behavior (if I am right) can be modified, meanwhile, I am modifying my behavior.
Luckily, I found a similar item, so I am waiting for Gixen to do it's stuff. I did recommend Gixen to someone and although the maximum bid was more than they were willing to spend, they were quite happy with Gixen.
Thanks for the fine service Mario!

Post subject: Watched Gixen do its snipe. Pretty amazing
Yesterday, I happened to be home when a bid was about to end. So I decided to watch the final minutes of the auction activity and see how Gixen was doing. As I kept refreshing my screen, I saw the other bidders put in their offers during the last minutes and seconds for the item.
As the auction began to close, other people were sniping for the win. I was tempted to jump in manually, but waited. Then, Gixen kicked in 6 seconds before the auction closed and it won my bid.
Gee, that was really fun.
