I have a WU which has been running for several days and seems to get stuck at a percentage complete.

Then I shutdown BOINC and relaunch and the accumulated work disappears and it restarts from a much lower percentage.

Rinse repeat.

The WU is crunching but with no percentage progress.

i had transfers stalled for weeks on a system that had "no more work" on gpugrid (board too slow). Aborting worked only until the next reboot. Only got rid by detaching and reattaching. may have been stuck for months as i rarely check that feature. maybe this was the "1" task the server status shows as ready to be sent. i finally got rid of it a few minutes ago.

Two more work units stalled which I had to abort.

Methinks there's a systemic problem managing WUs.
