I'm sending a number of these to further a study (almost complete) on the formation of pathological protein aggregates. I placed the WUs into the "short" queue - a GTX 275 (on Linux) should take around 8.5 hours for one.

On a GT240 they take over 50h, nothing even remotely short.
OK, my card is not the fastest, I usually don't even make the 24h deadline with normal, i.e. really short, WUs I get, but with those long running buggers there's no chance.
Why didn't you put them in the imho proper "long run" slot?
How can I avoid those WUs?

I think thats because they calculate with a GTX265 as slowest official supported Card. TONI Short WUs need 23h on my 9800GTX. Thats in bonustime ok, KASHIV needed 30h too. But our cards are "too slow" for this project and with a GTX265 or higher it runs definitly in the "short" times. I think anything in full bonustime (under 24h) with 265 or higher is short in there definition. Its ok, we only need faster cards :) Hope i can get anything like 570, 460 or 280 too in one month hopefully.

You mean GTX260 or GTX275; and both are faster than a GTX460, here.
Long tasks take around 8 to 12h on a GTX580, so 8.5h on a GTX275 fits in with the 'short'/normal task length grouping. 10h has been a fairly typical task length on my GTX260 for a long time.
