Bug Description

I have gotten myself a new machine (Asus N76V) and now quite a few SETI bundles get "completed" about 10 times faster than the reported time (reported time is from 40 to 90 minutes and the real time spent is from 5 to 8 usually... but sometimes as little as 30 seconds).

When i check my results at SETI project i see that i now have a huge number of invalid results.

Done.

I will report if that helped in a few days, to make sure that some time has
passed... unless of course the problems will resume sooner.

Same thing is happening. Just now 3 hour long job has completed in 2 minutes, it just jumped to 100%. And a 7 hour job is "complete" in 6 minutes 27 seconds.

thanks! So this seems to be an upstream problem, can you please report on the official website and link the report here?

Did anything come of this? I see you have changed projects but nobody else has reported anything of this sort which suggests it must be specific to your system.

I've stopped doing SETI@home for a while, but now have restarted and the problem has disappeared. I'm currently on Ubuntu 14.10 running native version of BOINC. But i'm planning to downgrade to XUbuntu 14.04 LTS in a little bit, i'll tell you what happens then.
