I've been using PayPal for 10years now. I had the same thing happen to me earlier this year. Hundreds of transactions and still got delayed... They changed their policy so you get to wait. Just one of the perks of using PayPal (Amazon payments ftmfw!).
*edit to add: Use the gift option too much and they puts your account on hold. Before that, they'll just take away your option to give/receive gift payments. They're going to get their cut of your transaction.
