Just a quick look at the few units that have actually come back. In some case it appears to have granted the median, sometimes the low value. In one case (WU 29493) it gave the other two computers credit, but not mine...

Yours was tagged by the validator as Invalid. This means that it did not match the other two closely enough. If you are getting alot of these, you may want to try to figure out if you have a hardware problem. For instance if you are overclocked or overheated, you could be causing this trouble. If it is just the one example, and most of your results compare OK, then it will be harder to determine what is happening.

Maybe the validator should wait for three valid results before allocating credit. This would cause some delay as the work unit would have to be sent to another client.

I think this might give a fairer result.

This problem happens in Predictor as well.
