Same issue in one of my private leagues as well (not commish). Yep, had the wrong setting there for who's available.
It was noticed just after we started our auction, at which point it was far too late to address it.
So.... what to do now? My league's having quite a debate about it right now. Most seem to think that the only "fair" way to do it is to freeze him out of the league for the whole season. Another owner thinks that he has a legitimate claim to him as the first team to nominate a player (and the first to bring him to our attention in the chat) during the auction.
Personally, I don't think he'll be that much of a game-breaker for the entire league (especially in a H2H). But, it does present quite a conundrum for a commish right of the bat. Don't think I'd want to be in those shoes today, with half your league ready to quit no matter what you decide.
