OMG !! I went though the thread and though "bummer, to offensive for me". Then I realised it was integrated with Bitcoin-QT. So I went in preferences on my Mac's QT and found the Coin Control featured and activated it. How cool!OK, i received a new matured MN payment and this time i used the QT coin control features to select the input to transfer, substracted the 0.001 fee - and it worked: The 1000DRK vin was not touched/changed, only the MN payment tx output was used as new tx input and the masternode is still active.
I guess the CLI does not have a convenient way of choosing the input for a transfer and you have to mess around with rawtransactions
Just to get it straight, as this starts to get too technical for me. We're payed to the 1k address. As I understand it, vin is tied to a raw tx hash, not an address. When you send funds out, the change is sent to new "hidden" address.
So lets say for example, without coin control, I have 1005 DRKs, and send 1DRK, I would break up the remaining 1004DRK to a new receiving change vin - this breaks the MN.
If you select the 1k deposit in Coin Control, it will send the change back to the same address, but that means a brand new tx hash anyways? In this case, I would receive back 1004k, and not the 1k deposit necessary keep the MN active.
I assume my reasoning is wrong... but do we have to "zero" out the 1000k deposit, or can I just move out 1 DRK, leaving 1004DRK in cold wallet and node active?
