When withdrawing bitcoins from Mt. Gox, there is an option with a checkbox next to it titled "Open Transaction (6 confirmations)".
What does this do to my withdrawal?
I'm thinking this is probably a mislabeling for an option that ensures that even if the receiving address is for another customer account at Mt. Gox that the transaction will be sent through the blockchain. Otherwise, if those transactions are handled internally without appearing on the blockchain then it is difficult to prove that a bitcoin payment was sent.
