Terrifying RMAH bug with large gold purchases

I bought 4 billion gold in a single purchase today through the RMAH. the RMAH listed it as a 10m gold purchase in the transaction log, and when the auction cleared there was only 10m gold to send to stash. When I hit send to stash, I also got a message saying "10m gold sent to stash." However, my wallet balance did update by 4 billion, so in the end it worked. Not before I wasted the time of a very nice support rep named Pengerothi, though.

Not sure what the threshold is for the bug, but a separate 1 billion purchase went through fine.

doesn't your screenshot show a purchase of 10 million gold, or did I have too much too drink? :)

That's the bug. Unless you thought I paid $100 for it :)

Hah, well, it sure looks like I discovered the wrong half of an overflow -- the other half was the gold dupe.

I feel kinda dumb. Hope Blizzard does the right thing.
