Of course, a similar problem occurs in systems that allow you to quit
out without penalty and pick up where you left off later... "Darn yeti!
I'll log and come back later when it's gone."

Of course, not all auction systems deliver items for you. The auction
hall in Ancient Anguish springs to mind. The problem there is that it's
a pain in the butt for players and nobody likes it.
Conspiracy theorists mistakenly assume others think before acting.
