I had a power outage and I *thought* my UPS would handle it.
But several LHC and a WCG task errored out with signal 11 - segmentation fault.
(after the restart)
I had done a suspend-all and shutdown before the battery reached 50%.
Is this because the glitch a bad checkpoint file???
PCs on a different UPS (Both linux and windows vista) had no effect.
I realize the the WUs will get recycled to the next user - but
I wonder if there is anything else I can do?
/var/lib and swap mounted on a sdd
/ and /home on a HDD
(edit) Perhaps I should have posted this to the BOINC forum.

Yep, that's a known problem with Linux.
I've had my Ubuntu machines get that error when there was an internet connection problem. Windows machines would continue to work just fine.
The BOINC people know about it and the WCG team knows about it.
AFAIK, we are still waiting for a fix.

Thanks for the feedback jay; LHC (SixTrack) should restart OK!
However I am wondering a bit about Checkpoint/Restart for
other reasons..... I'll keep you posted. Nothing you can do.
