Yeah, it's not really a problem. Just a bit odd that's all.

You can still access the coins from the other addresses and they still work to receive coins, check your Address Book.


Oh I see, it just shows the "latest" address that was generated, very cool. Well, isn't that cool. Learn more surprises everyday.  Grin

I believe I've seen this happen, too... it's a feature Wink
Using different addresses increases anonymity, but should ideally be a configurable option.
Hmm, I just noticed that too. Didn't know it was changing every time you restart the PC. Guess I need to update my sig again  Wink

I agree though, a feature to lock in an address is useful for donations, etc. Would be a very useful feature, I agree.

Hi I am running bitcoin on 2 machines which run Windows 7.

Any time the machines are restarted bitcoin generates a new receiving address. Has anyone else seen this with any other OS?
