I've recently added SETI@HOME and I've noticed that all of SETI's work units are prioritized over every other project and work unit on my computer even though most of SETI's deadlines are weeks or nearly two months away. Has anyone else experienced SETI "taking over" like this? If so, what did you do about it? I want to support SETI as well as Rosetta and WCG and SETI worked well at first, but now it seems to have taken over.
Thank you all!

Two things to consider.
BOINC normally runs on a First In First Out sequence, thus if SETI tasks were first to arrive they will be the first to be processed.
Second, the "resource share " has a very long timescale so if BOINC thinks that SETI needs to do a bit of catching up it will be given priority when calling for work.
