It looks like every time I get a job, BOINC client re-fetches Theory_2017_01_19.vdi as well. I've downloaded it 12 times in the last 20 days.
I wonder if there's a config error somewhere that causes this? I'm not bothered but it must be quite a bandwidth load at the server end if its happening to everyone.
I'm running a mix of all the sub-projects, so I dont usually have a queue of Theory work in my client.

Ah ha.
Completed Theory jobs, Theory_2017_01_19.vdi has been deleted from folder.
Theory_2017_04_20.vdi remains.

As higher versions caused errors the project rolled back to Theory 262.70 (resp. 262.80 for vbox32) some weeks ago.
You may reset the project to clean your local environment.

Yep, that fixed it.
