Hi Thiago,

Forgot to comment on the two latter:

> $ bitcoind getaccountaddress ""
> HTTP error code: 401
> Error: couldn't parse reply from server
> 
> $ bitcoind listaccounts
> HTTP error code: 401
> Error: couldn't parse reply from server
> 

401 = permission denied - you need to setup username / password either on the commandline or in the bicoin.conf file to access those commands...

See in the bitcoind.cpp file for commands that you can use with and without auth...

Those that contains an "auth" requires auth:

       server.registerMethod(method_ptr(new GetBalance(wallet)), auth);

As opposed to:

       server.registerMethod(method_ptr(new GetInfo(node))); 

auth is defined by:

       Auth auth(rpc_user, rpc_pass); // if rpc_user and rpc_pass are not set, all authenticated methods becomes disallowed.

so you just experience the case explained in the comment ;) I admit that the output could be more readable, though!

/M
