Ben running bionic on Windows XP for a while. Just noticed that I have been working on a unit for 26+ hours and the progress bar has not even moved. Anyone have any suggestions as to what might be the cause of this behavior?

First it is BOINC, not Bionic.

What is the project and application that BOINC is having trouble with?

Using an AMD Athlon 64 X2

Stuck task/app happens sometimes on some AMD CPUs during 'Optimal function choice' of the stock SETI@home Enhanced v6.03 app
(it happens only when task start/restart, not in the middle of computation)
(probably this will not happen when the new SETI@home v7 apps will come to use (some months in the future))

What you can do?
[Suspend] the task, wait a few seconds, [Resume] it
Or restart BOINC
