Noticed a different type of workunit with a long processing time and a very shortdeadline. What I also notices is that the task errored out on more that one pc:

I just noticed a similar task on a different pc. The time between sending and the deadline is only 12 hours and the estimated processing time om my Q9650 is between 10 and 11 hours.
Most pc's will not make this very short deadline so this is a terrible waste of resources!

This was a mistake of one of the students running calculations on BOINC right now. He was notified and the claculations should be split into two parts ;-).

Seems there are still problem tasks around.
Appearently these are only sent to Linux pc's. Very annoying as the CPU load is 100% but there is no progress at all.
