There are some WUs that run way longer than all others and it seems that they "reset" at the end. They reach 100% and start again at 0%. The time does not reset but the %%% do.

I haven't finished any of those yet but my wingmen have the same effect, you can easily see where .20 started at this host :

hostid=2328

.20 runs twice as long and gives less than half credits.


edit : after reaching 100% the second time, they end properly.

The validate problem seems to be fixed, I have seen some Windows .20 that validated against Linux .19

All .20 WUs seem to run twice as long as with .19 but credits are scattering:

1st wu CPU time 2,400.50 with 13.72 credits
2nd wu CPU time 2,415.95 with 40.56 credits
3rd wu CPU time 2,414.84 with 69.50 credits

Should be fixed now, the workunits should take their regular time.
