I found out that if you suspend a task long enough, BURP will think there's something wrong and close the task with a compute error.

For my own evil purposes I suspended 2 tasks yesterday. This morning I find they are closed with compute errors thusly:

Exception caught: Worker application apparently died prematurely
Status: -9

Meanwhile my third task is crunching away quite merrily and is now over 40 hours in.

I lost >20 hours due to this bug. Must be a bug, because the tasks was legally in suspension and not crunching.

Yet another reason to not crunch BURP? (low credits, frequent errors, and now this)

This is a known problem with the Blender application, and it also occurs in Renderfarm.fi too. Read about it here:
