When my WUs reach 100% they change their status to WaitR (Waiting to Run) and simply stay there. Only when I suspend all other projects, they finish and are uploaded.

Now I have 2 WUs that are always in the 'uploading' stage, no matter what I do.

Finally they were uploaded, I don't know why.

When my WUs reach 100% ...
Don't take BOINC's "percentages" too seriously. For native Theory you can see what the project code is up to with something like:
tail -n 20 /var/lib/boinc/slots/?/cernvm/shared/runRivet.log 
Most Theory apps will report progress as number of events processed, which you can compare with the total number of events requested (second to last number on the very first line).
As long as there's a steady rate of progress the task is fine. If the log file is stale (timestamp more than two hours ago) then I (personally) assume the code is stuck in an infinite loop, and abort the task.

(Unfortunately my computers have all had to be moved to the great datacentre in the sky, so I've written this down where I might stand a chance of finding it if I ever get to pick this up again!)
