In my case about 600 correct tasks are 180 incorrect. I see that in others it is similar - a lot of incorrect tasks. In each of over 100 projects I have not seen a long erroneous task, and in BURP it is terrible.
What could be the reason for this?

It's a project that is based on work contributed from the community, and there are a lot of variables that one can select when preparing a Blender session for rendering... As Blender continues to develop, there's always a bit of a learning curve with new versions of the software, and new features. So, there are bound to be some bugs and things that need to be worked out. This is a rather organic project; things change a lot on both sides of the equation, and everything is run by volunteers. Stability can suffer as a result, but there's a policy of making sure that everyone gets credit for work completed, regardless of validation result.
