I needed to run a job on my machine, and needed to suspend all BOINC jobs. No problem really, easy enough to do. Today, the job was finished so I released all the suspended jobs. Upon doing so, one of the cpdn jobs errored out. I looked here to see what was wrong with it and found that I had a number of earlier wu's also in the error state, some quickly, others after quite a long time. Is there something a bit flaky with the app?

I have certainly had problems on restarting a group of WAH2 models at the same time. So my procedure is to suspend the models rather than suspend the project. On restarting, I then resume each model, count to ten, then resume the next one. Of course, it shouldn't be necessary to do any of this black magic - but it works for me.

If it's a particularly interesting model I count to twenty.

I suspend each task, I didn't know you could do the other, useful to know. If you are seeing the problem as well it does tend to infer a weakness somewhere in the app.
