Bug Description

I installed the latest boinc client & manager on Gutsy & thankfully get this beautiful backtrace so maybe you can tell me what to do. Lemme ensure that before I was using the shell script provided by worldcommunitygrid.org to do my work which ran without an issue. I deleted it before setting up the new one.

I get this error message :-

"Authorization failed connecting to running client. Make sure you start this program in the same directory as the client."

Now here is the installation :-

Does this still occur with the 5.10.8-1 version of boinc in Ubuntu Gutsy?

I've just installed boinc myself, and when starting boincmgr, I get the same error dialog:
"""
Authorization failed connecting to running client.
Make sure you start this program in the same directory as the client.
"""

It appears you have to go to "Advanced => Select computer..." and chose "localhost" with an empty password there.

Please note that the crash itself is something different and looks like bug 150318.
