Despite the fact that I've got my SETI Resource Share at 99% and my Predictor Share at 1%, the projects continue to work as though there were a 50/50 share. Basically I only want to do Predictor work when SETI has none. It would be great if the shares could be fixed to allow that.

It may be bugged, but I feel that because the WUWUs have not been coming in a steady flow BOINC can not operate as designed. Hopefully in the coming weeks the problems will have been corrected and then we will see if it works as advertised. Plus they are working and a new and improved version of BOINC.

It gives first crack at downloading new work to the project that is furthest behind in its resource usage. If that project cannot fill the queue, the next project in the list gets its chance. Look at the log, and you should see that S@H is given a chance at filling the queue, and does not have enough (any) work so Predictor gets its chance. I know that I have them set up 50-50, and I am actually getting about 55% Predictor because S@H does not have enough work.
