Whenever a task is suspended or Boinc is snoozed, it results in an "Error while computing" failure. This is particularly annoying when processing has been grinding away for hours. This doesn't happen on any of the other projects I run, so how can I avoid this situation?

Your task ran into a Process got signal 11 error. Which can be anything, from a problem with your memory, via your page file, to a bad batch of work. But were it the latter, then everyone would have this problem.

So, something local, I would guess. Do know that Seti will stress your hardware in different ways, with different CPU extensions and command instructions, than Androids does. Other than that both run under BOINC, you can't really compare the two.
