I've had an active (I think) session in Gixen for several days now, and when I just tried switching between the Main and Mirror tabs and back again I got this message:

Your account has been suspended for the following reason: Too many failed login attempts (2).
The suspension will automatically be lifted after one hour. Please verify your password on eBay first before trying again.

I'm perplexed by this because 1) my credentials have not changed (e.g. this is not a case of eBay resetting my password), and 2) I didn't get any prior notification of a failed login.

I'm happy to say that I don't need access to my snipes in the next hour nor do I have any scheduled to execute in that window, but I'd really like to understand what's going on here. Also, if I *did* have snipes scheduled within the lock-out hour, would they execute or not?

I imagine that it is due to a time-out on the web session login, if you have had it open for several days.

It would not affect snipes being executed by the servers, it will only affect your ability to log in to your account for an hour.

I'd recommend logging out and back in, once every few days.
