eth.getPendingTransactions() does not work, but i do have pending transactions on this node, observe:

> eth.getPendingTransactions()
> eth.getTransaction(eth.getBlock("pending").transactions[0])
  blockHash: "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000",

Why doesn't it work? This transaction is EIP155 transaction, and I do have problems sending this type of transactions, they work with one blockchain but do not want to work with another. I wonder if some EIP field is hardcoded in the blockchain's Level DB database so geth thinks this blockchain is an old version and that's why it doesn't work, but I am not sure.


The field v is a function of the parity bit of the X coordinate of the public key and the chainId. The chainId may be the reason why this isn't working.

if (tx._chainId > 0) {
    ret.v += tx._chainId * 2 + 8;

Originally, ret.v is either 27 or 28, and this works fine with local test chain, but will fail on public chains.
