This has more effects than just losing that auction, as some people run their whole business through eBay. When the account is suspended, all other auctions by that seller are removed and some people are claiming that PayPal is flagging their account as suspicious (locking funds). 1up article:
eBay's started to crack down early-on with PlayStation 3 by enforcing their policy of not allowing auctions where the seller cannot guarantee the item will be shipped within 30 days of the auction's closing. Technically, sellers could have their auction last seven days, which would allow them to ship within the 30 day window, but it appears most didn't take this into consideration when listing.
