Thanks for the supportive comments.

Well... Vanguard is once again looking into things. It will take them 3 days to dearchive my paperwork. Then, as long as I ONLY checked the "transfer in kind" box, and NOT ALSO the "transfer balance as cash" box, they will probably have to do some sort of reversal, or make an adjustment by paying me the difference of the value of the shares on the transfer date (Oct. 18) and the day they resolve this.

IF, on the other hand, I DID check the box saying "transfer balance as cash," there will be nothing they can do. I really DON'T think that I checked that box, so things should be OK.

Geeeeeeez... I'm SO glad they want to help! When a small investor like me loses some money over an error, it's a big deal, but for them it would be a small price to pay to compensate me for their own ridiculous paperwork and poor administration -- and for my retirement money that has been lost in the market in the meantime!!!
