I am busy practicing writing contracts on the test network and I have a quesiton about how to empty a wallet.

This is what I have done:

  1. I created a new test wallet
  2. I sent it ETH 100
  3. I now want to send the ETH100 back to the original wallet

There is an option called: "Send Everything", however, how do I pay for GAS using this method?

If GAS should be included in the transaction, should mist not take this into account?

Inferring from this mist bug report, "Send Everything" should calculate the fees you need to complete your transaction. So that function should indeed completely empty your wallet.
