How to debug a long “0/unconfirmed” status in the bitcoin client?

I made a transaction two days ago, but blockexplorer.com doesn't show the recipient address. Also there are zero confirmations yet and I start wondering if something went wrong. 2 days and my transaction does not show up in a block. Also I'm not able to resend the coins to give it another try.

Thanks in advance guys.

    okay, it seems like I only had to ask this question. Just 5 mins. later transaction was confirmed one time!

    Was the client running the whole time? Maybe you posted the transaction and then closed the client before it had a chance to broadcast it. Sep 23, 2011 at 12:28

Bitcoin Charts is a great place to check and see if your transaction is out there. It displays unconfirmed transactions that have been broadcast to the network. If a transaction does not show there, then running bitcoin with the -rescan option should fix things up.
