    BOINC Manager 4.43, search 4.21. SZTAKI on "no new work". Running WU from ProteinPredictor, 40 minutes into it and 77% done. Set SZTAKI to "allow new work" and watched in Work tab.

    As soon as SZTAKI WU finished downloading, Protein Predictor WU CPU Time went to 0, Progress went to 0, SZTAKI WU started "running", but numbers were changing on the Predictor WU, climbing from 0 CPU and 0 progress to a few seconds CPU and 0.06% Progress.

    Quit BOINC Manager and relaunched it: both Protein Predictor and SZTAKI were showing 0 CPU and 0 progress. SZTAKI CPU Time and Progress started growing.

    Suspended SZTAKI WU and Protein Predictor WU started running; Progress went back up to 77.3% in just a few seconds, but CPU Time started over from 0. This makes the "To Completion" time show as about 18 more seconds...

    It appears that SZTAKI is writing it's CPU time and progress into the "wrong spot" if something else was running when it got it's WU to process.

    I'm going to be sending in a Protein Predictor WU shortly that will appear to have been done in 20 minutes instead of a bit over an hour, with accordingly low requested credit. I suspect this is why I've had WUs returned in ALL projects lately that were way low on requested credit...
