Noticed an APv7 workunit (3372198899) that no computers seem to agree on. Is there some aspect of the WU that makes it harder to gain consensus? Longer processing time? 0.5 rounding differences?

Actually it's the ATi/AMD GPU's that caused that (they're quite buggy these days with AP's), but other than that it should validate between the 2 CPU's.

Cheers.
