I have this work unit that is marked as inconclusive.
This normally is OK, but with timed out work units being counted as errors I can no longer get credit for this work unit, even though I have completed it successfully.

As it took me over 66,000 seconds to process, I would like the credit, so was wondering if these type of work units can be validated some other way?
Otherwise it has been a waste of time for me and no benefit for the project.

I just had one that went almost a day and then was marked as "Completed, can't validate" because the 4 other people had either not bothered to return it or aborted it. Then the WU is cancelled due to "Too many total results". Could the "max # of error/total/success tasks 2, 5, 2" be upped to more than 5 so that we're not wasting days of CPU time on this sort of thing? The one reliable user gets the shaft because users like Dr Z, Punchy, Petr, and Annonymous don't bother to return their work. Here's the WU as an example of the problem:

It looks like there is something odd going on.
I cannot upload results, have a lot of errors and do not get new wu's.

Lets hope that the admins will react quick.
