Error 931: Validation of the authentication token in API request failed.

My PHP web application suddenly stopped accepting API requests today. It seems to ahve a problem with token autorization. The thing is, this happens when I generate a brand new API token and use the API Test Tool in the developer site. I think there's something wrong with the server, anyone getting the same issue?

Yes, I've also been seeing some Trading API #931 errors sporadically over the past 24+ hours. I don't think there's a recognizable pattern, but it appears in bursts. Also at the same time, I'm seeing some Finding API errors about Invalid Sellers (I use the seller filter in some fIA calls) when those sellers are usually valid. Not sure if those 2 issues are related, but they seem to often happen during similar bursts. [This thread][1] seems to be about the token issue as well, and located in the proper subforum.

No problem here. And that's typically how we use tokens - generate them with the API Test Tool and use them live with Production API calls. And by "them" I usually mean 1 or 2 tokens that last for a while, then we don't need to use the tool for a long time. Are you having problems with Production or Sandbox? Which API calls? What errors are you receiving? Details matter.
