I've got a bunch of BURP tasks for session 3057 that aren't in my BOINC client (I reset the project in BOINC). Is there a way to clear those out?

Is there a ban threshhold for accounts that have too many computation errors?

They will get reassigned as needed, I think there may even be a way to re-download those tasks (I've heard of it being done at other projects) but with the short BURP deadlines they will probably be finished by other hosts in short order.

IIRC, there is a daily limit on WUs/errors, and a host "reliability" factor but no permanent ban.
