Despite having done quite a few work units in the last four days, which show on my account okay, the overall stats. don't seem to have been updated since the 07.02.2014? Is there a problem or is it down to a problem peculiar to me?

When you say "the overall stats" you may think it's clear where you look but it's not
(If in program - which? If on web-page - give link)

I think you look at some external 'stat' site.
All of those sites get the SETI 'export' files from here:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/stats/

(and at the moment the files are from 06-Feb-2014)

Okay, let's try this then...

On the SETI@HOME website, under the ACCOUNT page, the stats under "Computing and credit" "total credit" are updating daily and (for me at least) are currently three days and over 7,000 credits ahead the total on the same screen under the "Projects in which you are participating" for SETI@home "total credit" score. This total usually updates daily and is typically less than one thousand credits behind my current daily score.

There is something wrong. Someone needs to check it out. ...CC...

The stats under "Computing and credit" are always the most current - they update seconds after task is validated.
(the same numbers are shown to the left of your posts)

I'm not sure how the numbers in 'Projects in which you are participating' are populated but they are always behind (maybe update once a day, or when the stat files are exported?), probably for performance reasons (to reduce load on the database)

Projects in which you are participating is populated from a third party stats site. There are many things that can go wrong that will delay this report.

1) Project publishes stats. This is often turned off temporarily if the load on the DB is large. In S@H, it is pulled from a backup DB, and will always be a bit out of date.

2) Pulling the stats from each project. This is typically done a few times a day by the stats site. The fastest I know about is once every 4 hours. The longest is once a day. If the connection breaks somehow or the stats site has a problem, then this can delay the report.

3) The projects pull the data from the stats site. Again, this is a remote connection, and all sorts of problems can occur delaying the report.
