|Could you give us the auction number?
It sounds like there may have been a reserve, and your bid met the reserve. We'd have to see the auction to know for sure. Whatever happened, it had nothing to do with Gixen: the same thing would have happened had you placed the bid manually.
Perhaps you've learned this, but your experience highlights the importance of doing your research before bidding. If you bid too much for an item, you run the risk of paying too much for the item.
If you don't know where you are going, you will wind up somewhere else.
