This task has bee running for over 11 hours now, and is showing 105% complete.

http://burp.renderfarming.net/result.php?resultid=6871852

All the wingmen finished it in about 15 minutes. Should I abort it?

A similar situation with this task:

http://burp.renderfarming.net/result.php?resultid=6870419

I did abort it after about 8 hours.

P.S. I would have posted this in the 1192 session thread. But I can't find it.

Must be one of the rare bugs that the task runs longer - happens from time to time, was mentioned somewhere else. Since the other ones have finished it way earlier it would have been better you canceled it earlier - wasted time for you...

Looks like 1192 was finished and encoded fast. You still can post to the session by going to the session gallery, choosing the right one and add the comment there.

Got the very first longer running one for me now also, and that with the new 2.81 client.
Luckily I noticed it soon enough with checking the wingmen times.
I wish there would be an alarm signal or something similar when it goes into infinite mode. ;-)
