This WU came up inconclusive , and I looked at it and noticed the wingmans task info looked unusual... stderr showed that the appinfo.xml for that computer seems to have some ( maybe ) errors in it ?

No app_info at all, that is a stock 64-bit Linux app on that machine.

Ok , I just noticed the stderr showed some unusual context in it , sample below.

<stderr_txt>
Unrecognized XML in parse_init_data_file: hostid

Unrecognized XML in parse_init_data_file: hosted

-----------------------------------------------------

Not being a Linux user myself , I didn't realize that might be a normal thing for a Linux machine...

Sorry for my mis-understanding of the stderr text file...
I guess you never learn if you don't ask...

...and that stock 5.28 application is from October 2007, when the BOINC API was set to print out any unrecognized XML. The host is running BOINC 6.10.45 from April 2010, which puts additional information in the init_data.xml file which is not expected or needed by the application. No harm done, though it does look peculiar.
