Except for 1 CMS tasks, all finished with computation error as shown here

Unaccountably, boinc (using the BoincTask's history file) thinks five CMS tasks finished ok rather than just one. Possibly BM or maybe BT is not recognizing the exit code or state reported by the Boinc client. The image below shows, in red, the failing tasks with the green ones supposedly correct. The only actually good task was CMS_2758607_1583327645_654309_0 which had and exit code of "0" and state of 31.
Note that it ran for 14 hours, about right while others were far less, some only 20 minutes.
The codes and states are part of the boinc client and not the same same (I am guesing) as reported by the app and shown on the project web site.

Is the source code available where I can track down the exit code to see what the client expects? An exit code of 65536 is actually "0" if the client expects a short integer. Same for 13565952. However, some of the 13565952 are marked as bad which is correct so the problem is not just the wrong return type.

See this post:
It's better not to run CMS until Ivan posts a "GO".
