Janus, while you\'re around: I\'ve been getting \"no work from project\" messages for the last 20 minutes in spite of 449591 \"waiting WUs\" (everything is green on the status page). I suppose no-one else is getting any work either, because that number is increasing (was 449587 a couple of minutes ago). Did something go wrong with the server configuration? Or is that just a temporary effect of the server configuration rebuild?

EDIT: Added afterthought (thoughts are coming slowly early in the morning)

Nice catch, the feeder had stopped running because of the locallity scheduler overloading the database again. It (the locallity scheduler) has been switched off and the feeder has been re-enabled.

With the \"two tasks per CPU\" rule, how can this two-core machine have over 30 tasks \"in progress\" at the time of writing? (Lots of \"no reply\" as well!)
