Hi,

It seems that the server thinks that my computer has downloaded a work unit, but it's not on my BOINC Task list.

I notice that it has previously yielded an error for a different user.

That's called a ghost unit. See also Tasks listed online as in progress but not on BOINC Manager task list.

Gruß,
Gundolf
