    1. Does anybody know how the name given to the work unit is derived? There seems to be no comparison between successive downloaded units.
    2. Why do the names have to be so BIG! 38 hexadecimal characters seems like overkill: it is noticable, in the BOINC manager \"Tasks\" page that Sztaki names are longer than any of my other projects (No, I don\'t have ALL the other projects attached!).

      16 bytes / 32 hex characters - all plattforms allow way more, some Unix filesystems even slightly less than 64k but all at least 128 characters.

      I made this WU name column quite narrow, usually the most important information is in the first few bytes anyway (series, WU type or so, depending on project) and the names are often project internal organisation criteria - as long as the filesystem can handle them, I don\'t see a problem.

        The 13th character is always a 4. It was already a 4 during the processing of dimension 11. The last character in the filename is the replication number (0, 1 or 2).
