a Theory tasks which got started on August 30 obviously finally got finished today (1 day before expiration date), but I suspect the resulting file was that big that it exceeded some server limitation or whatever:

https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/result.php?resultid=398586641

at the bottom of stderr it says:

</stderr_txt>
<message>
upload failure: <file_xfer_error>
<file_name>Theory_2390-1124830-530_2_r1780158854_result</file_name>
<error_code>-240 (stat() failed)</error_code>
</file_xfer_error>
</message>

I know this kind of problem from GPUGRID, where files >500MB fail to upload.
So I guess the same situation may be true here.
Does anyone know about any such limitations?

In other words, after how many days of runtine should one abort a Theory task, in order not to waste a lot of CPU time because the resulting file will be too big, and all the CPU work was for nothing ?
