    I assume its a known issue, but my client gets suck almost every time I try to mix so i figured i should make a post about it. It happens because a denominate transaction hours old is showing as 0 unconfirmed or as conflicted. Restarting client does not fix it, recover transactions 1 from the wallet repair tab does resolve the issue.

    Yes, I can only confirm from my experience that it happens quite often that Darksend mixing transactions (by the way, transactions with a zero fee) just get stuck, and it can take hours until they get confirmed (if at all).

    I wrote a simple bash script (requires Linux/Unix) that can help to propagate such a stalled transaction:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    dash-cli getrawtransaction $1 | xargs dash-cli sendrawtransaction
    
    Save the code above into file named resendtx and make it executable:

    Code:
    $ chmod +x resendtx
    
    For a stalled transaction with an ID of XXX (look up the ID from the wallet GUI), call the script on a computer which is not the computer you are mixing from:

    Code:
    $ resendtx XXX
    
    It should help to propagate the stalled transaction thereby letting DarkSend to move on (no guarantee of course).

    Of course, it is not a permanent solution. I did not yet figure out, whether it is a network issue or something else. Any feedback from the devs or DASH power users is appreciated.

    When I do the recovery it shows hundreds of confirmations so it is making it to the network.
