Notice that one of my tasks is now at 3 hours elapsed: 03:16:47

SETI@home	8.22 SETI@home v8 (opencl_ati5_SoG_nocal)	0.0463C + 1ATI (d2)	94.1	03:16:47 (03:05:14)	00:09:44	rx560	21au19aa.29610.1703.11.38.45_1

I then went over to all my tasks and looked at all "errors"
https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?userid=2129&offset=20&show_names=0&state=6&appid=

sure enough, looks like the no_cal have a problem. Under preferences there is no option to prevent no_cal from downloading. Any suggestions? Using boinctasks I can set a timeout but eventually I got to go in there and abort them manually.

The AP errors were because I failed to install the OpenCL library on that nVidia system. Not sure why just the nocal fail on this ATI system.

[EDIT] Just discovered that if I suspend and then resume, the task goes on to finish just fine.

1. Suspend: after a few seconds the GPU gets another task.
2. Resume: after a few minutes one of the other tasks completes and the formerly suspended one picks up. I notice the 3 hour elapsed time is gone and is replaced with only a few minutes. that is inconsistent. if 3 hours wall clock elapsed why did it revert back to 0 or whatever? Anyway, it finished and uploaded. Do not know if it is to error out as it is hard to lookup those tasks once uploaded.
