I've had very few problems with this project, but I've had some cases that indicate some watching over any machine with it installed is necessary (e.g. http://www.vdwnumbers.org/workunit.php?wuid=4537713).

In Boinc Manager, it shows the WU as running, and apparently never finishing, but after I aborted it, apparently very little work was actually performed (note difference between run time and cpu time).

Chipotle,

It may be that that your computer does not have enough RAM for this project, so the workunits cannot start, but it still shows them as running. The workunit was completed and validated successfully on computers with much more RAM than the yours.
