Diablo patch breaks its economy

Blizzard released a patch for Diablo 3 yesterday to the American serves, and it resulted in a bug that allows players to duplicate gold when putting items up on the auction house. When you cancelled a gold auction in you would receive back double the gold that you were supposed to, and it in turn made gold extremely cheap.  Blizzard found out about the issue last night and have effectively shut down the auction house while they work on it. We will let you know more as this develops.
