Another thing you could consider doing, at least until they get this issue figured out, is to set the "Switch Between Applications Every xx Minutes" setting in your profile to something greater than what it is currently set to. That should let you finish the workunit you're working on, unless it's a really long running one. You may want to consider at least doubling what you currently have it set to.

Most of the v64lhc type WU's finish under the 60 minute Switch & still report no Time back to the server ...

The simplest solution I found was to set the switch time to 90 min. This guarantees that the v64lhc type WU's have time to finish before changing to another project. I've completed every WU since making the change. The processing time is anywhere from 5 min. to 75 min.

The v64boinc WU take about 6 hr on my system and have always restarted properly.

BTW do not use "leave in memory" option with W98 OS as there is problem of releasing some projects properly.

Questions? Answers are in the BOINC Wiki.
