tried again to give away my AmericanCoin today. was running pywallet.py against the wallet to which I had sent the coin, made QR codes out of the key and address, and posted to my Facebook page. but something wasn't right. americancoind didn't recognize the address as valid, and dumping the gift wallet and the other wallet.dat that I use gave the same results. wtf?

finally figured out that pywallet ignored the wallet path I was giving it and was using my bitcoin wallet instead. I gave away the private key to my bitcoin wallet! luckily it was empty, or "pissed" would not begin to express my anger.
