Thanks for your question.

I think you can calm down a bit. Your application will be judged on the immigration rules in place at the date the application was received by the UKBA. If they have acknowledged your application by letter then clearly they have received the application.
The fact that they have not deducted the money for the application fee/biometrics does not indicate that the application will be refused. The UKBA is not a robot, it’s is prone to doing things in ways that you may not expect so I would avoid drawing conclusions without having any firm evidence.
The fact that your leave to remain has expired is also not a problem. If leave expires whilst an applciaiton is in process you shall have temporary leave to remain until such time as the application is actually determined. IN the event that leave is not granted you then have a further 28 days to leave before you are regarded as an overstayer.
You can appeal and have temporary leave until appeal of the determination. You get a much fairing hearing on appeal. Not that I’m saying that your application will be rejected, just trying illustrate that you have options
