normally i don't "me too!" but just for the sake of being counted as
one of the gouged, "me, too!"  i had this *exact* same experience,
except that the domain i was trying to register (more than 6 months
exired) was eventually registered by someone using

the upside?  this prompted me to get off my lazy butt and stop using
netsol to register our 10 or so domains/month for customers.  we are
working with opensrs now.  (in the process of getting contracts
reviewed, etc., and should be fully migrated away from using netsol in
about 30 days.)
