We call these "ghost" workunits... workunits that the server thinks it sent to your computer but your computer never received.


The Project Administrators turned on a feature called "Resend lost tasks" which should clear this up by the server cross-checking it's list with what is on your computer and sending any missing tasks.


If it doesn't, it's really no big deal (and there's nothing you can do about it). The workunit will simply time out and be sent to someone else. It doesn't count against you.
