Somebody hasn't bothered to read any other posts. If you had you would've seen that this has been posted before. Check the forums first before you post.

With S@h there is a debugging file running. So it will take ist bit more I think.

The increased "to completion" time has nothing to do with debugging files. The work units take no longer to complete than before. This has been discussed in other posts.

There was a problem with the estimated time to complete, the problem is now fixed. The wu's are the same size as before.

I got 2 hours ago 2 new WU's. The "long" completion time is still the same.

I recieved two wu 28 hr completion time, the next one that I received is back to 4HRS 45 mins.
So I ass/u/me[d] the problem was fixed, maybe there are some wu resent with the inflated estimated time. The time index is attached with the wu when it is split [or made]. If that wu was resent the estimated time is still inflated.
This is just my guess.
