I added bounty to it.

No answer recieved.

I applied bounty to my own answer (to get 50 rep back).

Bounty dissapeared, I didn't recieve 50 rep back. shows line "8 3921151 (-50)" and no "(+50)" line.

Accepting your own answer does not give the bounty, I'm afraid. This is by-design; otherwise bounty would always be essentially free - just offer a bounty, get some nice answers, then accept your own answer to get the points back.

But I didn't recieve ANY answers at all. So I lost 50 rep for nothing. – user148499 Oct 26 '10 at 14:46
It is regrettable that there werent answers, I agree; but that doesn't change the way bounty works. I wish I knew the answer for your SO question. – Marc Gravell Oct 26 '10 at 21:58
