About 30 min ago I discovered on 2 computers I am running the project SETI@home twice.
It appears that the project name for SETI@home Beta changed to SETI@home.
The Total Credits for the 'new' SETI@home are those of SETI@home Beta; I could verify that on a third computer.
The massages I received are as follows:

16-06-2010 23:54:01 SETI@home Beta Test Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
16-06-2010 23:54:01 SETI@home Beta Test Requesting new tasks
16-06-2010 23:54:02 SETI@home Beta Test Started upload of 23mr10aa.6549.22562.3.13.194_0_0
16-06-2010 23:54:05 SETI@home Beta Test Finished upload of 23mr10aa.6549.22562.3.13.194_0_0
16-06-2010 23:54:06 SETI@home Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
16-06-2010 23:54:06 SETI@home You used the wrong URL for this project
16-06-2010 23:54:06 SETI@home The correct URL is
16-06-2010 23:54:06 SETI@home You seem to be attached to this project twice
16-06-2010 23:54:06 SETI@home We suggest that you detach projects named SETI@home,
16-06-2010 23:54:06 SETI@home then reattach to
16-06-2010 23:54:06 SETI@home Already attached to a project named SETI@home (possibly with wrong URL)
16-06-2010 23:54:06 SETI@home Consider detaching this project, then trying again
16-06-2010 23:54:06 SETI@home Message from server: Invalid or missing account key. To fix, detach and reattach to this project.

It seems the change occured after the last upload.

Has anybody else seen this?

Yes Ruud, it has been noticed and duly reported to the powers that be!
