I had 2 ATLAS tasks (dual core VM), both doing Theory-jobs

I aborted both tasks.

Did you change your local setup after you aborted the tasks, e.g. a project reset?
I guess no, otherwise you would have written it here.

Would be interesting if your wingmen also get Theory tasks.

I suppose it was one of the BOINC-secrets.

I found a vdi-file in one of the slots that should be empty.
That file was not present in VirtualBox Media Manager, so not locked.
It must have been a remnant of a Theory-task and that vdi was then probably used by a new ATLAS task.
I stopped BOINC, cleaned up the slots and restarted BOINC. Next task was a real ATLAS one.

Atlas doing a Cosmology-job (at least it tried):
