I have upgraded my preferences from 1.5 days to 2.5 days, small increase I thought I might get extra work, however it seems that I am still getting the same amount of work. So I am asking when do I get more WUS or shall I just leave it and it will sort itself out.

Did you upgrade the "right" preferences? (Local/online - different venues)

Is there also a line like "Reading preferences override file"?
