I've always thought that it was part of the same mechanism that stops VLAR's being sent on a nVIDIA request myself.

Cheers.

Could you please explain this remark? Is it a joke? Am I missing something (besides 100 or so IQ points)?

With people who are not running the nVIDIA openCL app then the Astropulse workunit will be treated the same as a VLAR, CPU request makes it through but isn't acknowledged at the user end so the workunit becomes a ghost and then the machine requests GPU work so any ghosts that can only run on CPU for that setup will be automatically timed out.

Cheers.
