Sorry, caught me at a bad time. I personally have answered this question numerous times.
No, the problem isn't that there are problems with BOINC running multiple projects. It's just that people don't understand what is going on when they join a new project.
It is normal for the new project to dominate the WU queue until the resource share balances out between the projects.
It can also appear lopsided however, if the other project(s) don't currently have any work to give. In such a situation, the other project(s) will pick up the slack. In other words, If S@H can't give you anything, P@H will fill your entire queue. Then when the low watermark is hit and BOINC requests more work and S@H is still having issues, you will again get a full queue of P@H.
