Welcome to the internet. Sometimes things go wrong. If you think you can run a project, then please do so, we'd all love to have a perfectly optimized BOINC project with no downtime and work always available...

This is obviously a new problem, but app 1.22 has been out for a while. Interesting that it hangs on Linux boxes but fails immediately on Windows. That explains why I haven't found any compute errors on non-Windows OSes. I have a few good results that I'm going to allow to finish, then I'm going to no new work, at least until I'm available to test some more. Good luck to the dev team on this one!

it's starting with gs_3737082, for example these tasks:
gs_3737082_1211940453_948699_0
gs_3737082_1211948419_976766_0

The client returns an error code of -1, with this error message:

<core_client_version>6.1.16</core_client_version>
<![CDATA[
<message>
- exit code -1 (0xffffffff)
</message>
<stderr_txt>
Error reading into background_parameters:

They are reported as 0 cpu seconds, and they consistently fail immediately upon execution on my system, computer 7004, app version 1.22 on Windows XP Pro SP2 using BOINC 6.1.16 prerelease. It also occurs on clients 5.10.45 and 6.1.0, and on Windows Vista and Windows Server. I have not seen any errored out units to Linux machines. This workunit [1] has errored out on 5 machines, and this [2] is a sample return. This [3] is another return, where "Process got signal ll".

[3] http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/result.php?resultid=30876823

Update: I have located several units that do not fail. I'm using the workunit name in the boinc client for these information, and do not know how to find these pages on the website. Once the results post, I will give you links.

These names fail:
gs_3737082_1211949629_980245_0
gs_3737082_1211949631_980276_0

These do not:
gs_3737082_1211949631_980277_0
gs_3737082_1211949631_980275_0
gs_3737082_1211949631_980278_0
gs_3737082_1211949629_980246_0
