These are long work units. I'm not going to be able to return work before deadline is up.

Took nearly as long as the WUs of the last "(slow)" session (11 vs 13 hours) here. A 18 hour deadline isn't leaving much buffer there. :|

Edit: Just noticed that I got more then one WU of this session at once - thats not going to work out ...

Aargh, sorry, my fault - this one had not correctly been tagged as "slow" in the renderqueue. It was not supposed to have been rendered as a normal high-prio session. New workunits from this session will have the correct deadlines set.

Keep the units running btw - those first few workunits (even those now showing the wrong deadlines) still need to complete.

Thanks for the quick response!

I see that if a work unit's deadline has passed for this session the task is returned with the message Aborting task ...frame info listed...; not started and deadline has passed. Someone with the 18 hour deadline may want to start a task even if it is 2 sec as it will not abort from time out or start using RAM.

But credit is more than 10 times lower as before.
I don't find any reason for this different rating.

There was a miscalculation on credits earlier with one session.
Janus corrected it later. Since he is currently out and can't fix the network issue also we have to wait for that I guess... ;-)

Got the same problem now.
Looks like that lousy CreditNew does mess up again and hits a limit with 203,63 credits. :-(
I hope you can correct that later, Janus, this is really way too low for these WUs. ;-)

Absolutely! I'm not particularly happy about this CreditNew thing either. When Sunflower is over I'll go through everything once more and make sure that proper credit is granted for everything. It will probably make a massive jump in the credit graph - let's just call it "Payday"

Janus and DoctorNow,
thanks for your replay.
5(Five) finished task now waiting for PayDay.
I'll start the next two tasks over next weekend for lousy 203,63 credits.
