Drat, I think I have another WU that could be stuck.
Currently running since 24 hours and stuck at 98,031% for about 12 hours already - and the cpu usage varies: for a while it was at 25% (which means one core on my quad), and now it's 100% again.
Since two of my wingmen already finished it a lot earlier I don't know what I should do - do I let it run or not?
I wonder if there is a way to figure out with absolute certainty that it could be stuck, I'm not sure anymore. My experience with BURP WUs is currently at it's limit with that strange behaviour. ;-)

When it hits post-processing (that's around 98%) it will go between 25% (or 1 core) and 100% usage (all cores) 8 times while the memory does some spikes in the same pattern - after that it completes. I'd let it run if it is still using CPU.

The stalling issue looks different, there they go to 0-3% cpu and just never completes.
