Since last weeks errors on "de_modfit_fast_18_3s_146_bundle5_ModfitConstraintsWithDisk-fixed_Bouncy" the wu's take allmost twice as long to crunch and get 454 credits.
"de_modfit_fast_19_3s_146_bundle5_ModfitConstraintsWithDiskandUpdateStreams_Bouncy","de_modfit_fast_20_3s_146_bundle5_ModfitConstraintsWithDisk-fixed_Bouncy", get the normal amout of 227credits.
There is no explanation at all in 'news'.

Why is that or is it another bug?

If science is not in question you can leave it this way.
There is less overhead in the crunching, so more wu's/time...

Hey aad,

Sorry, I just noticed this. This is because there are extra calculations being done for the science. We actually have to cut out a section of the data in a special way to remove a saturated star. This makes it take a bit longer to run.

This is not something we can do for every run and is something that will happen on a select few different sections of the sky.
