Re: overflow bug SERIOUS

Interesting.. fascinating to watch this work its way through the bowels of the system.
It was block 73746 that I generated.
CTxOut(nValue=50.00000000, scriptPubKey=0x8DDD5C7DADB2D43AC5F186)
08/12/10 02:35 generated 50.00

And I sent 49.00 of it to 19Nzg21hQQDAY5GTdTTuUVPA4MaE7AusXz (using the broken chain)

Now I’m waiting for that node to figure out it was received, and it’s using the new chain.

It looks like we overtook the bad chain somewhere around 74689.  0.3.9 and lower nodes have been responding with the current block number for some hours now.

That means it’s no longer necessary to delete blk*.dat before upgrading.  You can just upgrade and it’ll reorg away the bad block chain.

Thanks to everyone for the quick response!
