    I have noticed that sometimes I will click on the wrong thing in the NPC Vendors window, it is as if there is an invisible line there, and you look like you are clicking on the Hares, but are actually hitting the Cats. just look at your side of the "bill" and see if it says Cats or Hares before you click "accept"

    I had this problem last night. I clicked to buy a recall rune. I wanted 20. So I clicked on the + icon, counting up to twenty. Every time the count got to 15, the left side of the window would blink and my cursor would be over another item, adding it to my buy list. I did this many, many times, trying to figure out what was happening. It looked like the whole buy gump was switching to a different vendor mid transaction. However I could not confirm this. Best I could do was to buy 15 runes, then initiate another sale for the remaining 5. All I can report here that is certain is that at 15 the error would occur over and over again.

    OK, I am stupid, I admit it.... Decided to try to buy runes again this morning and figured out what was happening. The vendor only had 15 for sale. When I had added to my cart, the listing for recall runes disappeared from under my cursor and the list bumped up. The next thing on the list was a cure potion which ended up in my cart list as I continued to click count to 20.

    In the past, I've accidently bought items I didn't want (what you think you're clicking on isn't always what you get). Now though, when I take my time and verify what I'm buying before hitting the accept button, I never have a problem.

    Its easy done with a lot of the same items are stacked on a vendor....like say a 'com deed for 100 recalls' at 4000g...if one or two in the middle of the stack is priced at 40000g...buyers wanting a lot would rarely notice the small change...just accepting it over and over....yah best to keep a carefull eye out whn buying a lot of the same item!!

    you only have to click once, then switch to the little "+" sign next to it in the list on the right part - it'll keep increasing the amount the longer you hold down the plus sign

    or, even easier, hold down the CTRL key when you double click on the item on the list the first time and it'll fill in the buy side list with the vendor's entire stock of that item
