I've seen this on plenty of projects. It's related to the fudge factor used to estimate the time remaining. The change in direction occurs because without an estimate of completion (i think they call those checkpoints), the BOINC client only has elapsed time as an indication of progress.

It isn't an issue and everything is working as it should. If you want to see weird estimates, try Primegrid. My record is an initial estimate of 5,500 hours for a task that took 80 hours. Oh the days I've spent watching that estimate drop minutes for seconds....
