I think that the validator needs 'tweaking'. It's not nice to download a wu and return it three hours later only to get zero credits because it was received 'too late to validate'. It seems to me that any wu returned before the reporting deadline should get some credits (assuming it does validate)!

That's not supposed to happen, I guess. Could you provide an URL to the specific workunit this happened too? Then we can have a look.

Sorry, this occurred six weeks ago, and the results have long since disappeared from the db. I haven't been crunching any Leiden units since then. There was a similar report over in the number crunching forum by vid vidmar, maybe he still has the results.

All right, I just found that thread. His result is also already deleted from the database, so I can't really answer your question.
But when I just started, I was curious about late results, and started this thread. River answers with an excelent post about validation and late results, in my opinion.
It's not a solution to your problem, but maybe it's useful.
If this happens again, please post a link to your workunit, so other people can have a look.

This is happen frequently. I think I loose approx. 100 credits every day. The error is that the downloaded units are treated as sser error without reason. My http://boinc.gorlaeus.net/results.php?userid=1421 is containing a lot for WU's with errors, but all are running extremely well.
I would suggest to also validate late-coming results that of one or another reason have been marked as erroronous.
