To clarify, the task was compared to the same task ran by a different user, and you both have different results. A third task has been generated and sent to another user to see who is correct. This is normal, nothing to worry about unless you have a significant amount of tasks reporting back as invalid.

Is that all? I've hundreds of them, but they're just noisy work units. ;-)

Cheers.

Ok, thanks for clearing that up.
It just came to my attention that in the past 12 hours I got as many of them as the previous 4 days.

Ok I will keep That in mind,
I checked what work units the tasks were from it seems there is no correlation though.
A wide variety seemed to have tasks ending prematurely so might have been on my end.

Today has been very stable been running all day not one showing any sign of problems.

I've been getting a lot of these over the last month or so that only get to about 0.6% and then just stop. Then it moves on to another one which only gets to about 0.6% and again stops. Sometimes it will get to one that will finish but it just keeps trying to recycle these that only get to 0.6%.
