AuctionLite

109 - AuctionLite Sell should be aware of ones own auctions

This is kind of a cute design mistake of sorts -- where you can actually end up undercutting the prices of items you yourself have for sale.

Example scenario (which I'll provide screenshots for):

- AuctionLite is configured for 25% bid undercut, and 8% buyout undercut
- Place item(s) for sale on the AH.  Example: Copper Chain Belt, with a bid price = 25s, buyout price = 30s.
- Verify auctions show up in Auction tab (see screenshot #1)
- Obtain item(s) of the same type (ex. Copper Chain Belt)
- Place item(s) into AuctionLite - Sell tab
- Calculated bidding price = 22s, buyout = 30s (see screenshot #2) -- even when nobody else is selling items of this type!

Really what should happen in this scenario is that the calculated bidding price should be 30s and buyout = 35s, i.e. what is already on the market.  Otherwise you end up "undercutting against yourself", rinse lather repeat.

    Screenshot #3, by the way, is a standard Browse search for "Copper Chain Belt", which shows the only person selling these items at the time was me (i.e. the two already-on-market items shown in AuctionLite - Sell are mine, not someone elses).
