Summary0007299: taler-wallet core attempts to pay even if wire method mismatches
DescriptionThe contract terms contain the wire method. Some tests set it to 'x-taler-bank', even though the exchange (as seen in /wire) only supported 'sepa'. The wallet nevertheless attempts to pay. The result is not pretty. It seems the merchant backend doesn't even forward the payment attempt (after getting /wire), but then doesn't give a good message to the wallet *or* the wallet handles it badly. Not sure which yet... ;-)

Is this really something that the wallet must check? This seems like the merchant configuration is wrong here and/or the contract terms are invalid. I guess the wallet *could* output a "merchant is misconfigured" message

The wallet currently only uses the wire method to compute wire fees (to potentially cover wire fees when the merchant doesn't cover them). If the merchant specifies a wire method that the exchange doesn't specify, it assumes that these fees are zero.
