Hi gang!

I have been having a problem lately running Lunatics under 7.2.42. I normally run between 00:30 and 05:30; it is too bloody hot the rest of the time. Lately, I have been checking, and sometimes, 4 of the 9 CPU work unit threads will start over from 0, and I lose 8-9 processing hours just recovering from the backup. I haven't seen it affect GPU work units, just the CPU only WUs. Has anybody seen this sort of behavior, and if so, is there anything that can be done? It is only annoying, the world isn't collapsing on me, it is just curious that only 4 threads will give up and restart. Thanks in advance.
