I have a lot of Leiden WUs on computer 88819 that end with a CPU time of 0 sec and therefore claim 0 credits.
Nevertheless the WUs are valid.

Other WUs show normal CPU times
Some of the "strange" WUs show the same behavior on computers of other users.

Can anybody explain this?

H'mmm, I have no explanation for this yet; usually the client 'claims' a certain amount of credit and this amount together with the result is compared to another run. If they both match, you are granted the credit. So that seems to indicate that if your client somehow asks '0' credit, yet the output is just fine, there is something with the BOINC client code?

Having had a look at the results of this computer in the DB; you do get the credits you claim somehow?
