I've seen this question, in which the poster says he was never awarded the auto-bounty. At some point since his question, the bounty must have been awarded to him, because it's marked as such on the question in question ( couldn't resist :)

It looks like I should have been awarded the half-bounty here, but I have not been as of yet. Can anyone provide illumination on this?

edit: I've got the Bounty Now

But, for those searching this in the future, How Long Does it Take?

You have been awarded a bounty of 50 just 5 minutes ago. – Arjan Jan 12 '11 at 15:23
Right, @Arjan, check the edit. But thanks for that link, I didn't know I could view other people's revisions. cool! – JakeParis Jan 12 '11 at 15:27
You can always manually compose such link if you want to see the source, or simply click the date after "edited" once there are more revisions. Also nice: – Arjan Jan 12 '11 at 15:38

Bounty is awarded hourly so it depends on the stop time vs the hour boundary.

It was awarded at 15:19:07Z. Lots of things to do then every hour? – Arjan Jan 12 '11 at 15:43
