About 5 minutes ago I had 51 valid work units (I hope I have the terminology right) and 19 Validation Pending.

Now, however, I have 49 valid work units, 19 validation pending, and 0 for Invalid and Error.

Any idea on what happened to the other two?

It's impossible to keep all work forever in the BOINC database, it is already several terabytes as it is. So all validated work has one copy of itself put into the scientific database and all its copies in the BOINC database are removed 24 hours after validating.
