I've been contributing for a few years now, I've only recently notice the problem a couple of months or so back soon after the new cruncher was released I think. I had a look on the boards back then and their didn't seem to be anything about it, so I didn't give it a second thought, maybe a batch of stodgy WUs or something.

Anyhow, what I really need to know is whether it's normal to have WUs knocking around at 0%, but still active (running) for 10hrs or more?

I think my record on one machine for one particular sticky was over 150hrs of CPU time, at that point I gave it the boot, because it was still stuck at 0%.

This seems to be a sporadic problem from time to time. The usual fix is to simply restart BOINC (or stoping and restarting it if you're running as a service).

Well I have the same issue..
I noticed that as soon the nvidia driver crashes one of the 2 cards running cuda will simple stop crunching and start sending 0% results every 19 seconds...

I hope a solution can be found soon.. I don't know if I should stop using my GPU till they fix it...

If its throwing out nothing but errored results and you still want to have a RAC then I'd stop it.
