Oh man, this session uses quite a lot of RAM, not even my quad can't render a WU, needs over 500 MB RAM more, and I have nothing else in memory...
Who has so much memory on board to crunch that?
Besides that, it prevents me from getting work from the other sessions because BOINC is always insisting on it.
Can't you do something about that, Janus?

This session does indeed seem to be slowing down other sessions slightly. If you are lucky you can still get workunits from other sessions.
I'll look into it later today.

For the next couple of days we will be trying out a new workunit priority algorithm. The hope is that it will be able to make work available for everyone (although people with more than one machine may sometimes have to try several times to get work if they fetch work simultaneously).

Just bought another 2GB of ram to take the total to 10GB... this workunit was the last straw for me getting it :)
