The weird questions don't bother me so much as the fact that he has twice retracted bids on an item he is winning. He is also selling a few items very similar to mine (including an older version of what he is bidding on) and has a reasonably large buying and selling history...so he should know how it works and thus a couple of his questions seem really dumb.
My guess is that he was using his retracted bids to test the water on what the other high bidder's top bid was...which tells me that he is probably cheap and won't win in the end (I usually expect large surges in the last few minutes of any items with a few bids and a bunch of watchers).
