I am still getting memory leaks with the 'gs_' wu's. No other problems noticed yet. Almost identical times to complete as the previous wu's.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

no problems here too since 113 application. what i can see is i beat down the work
~20 secs faster no matter if gs or ps :). happens to both of my computers.

maybe using gcc 4.2x was a good idea ^^

This project is using GCC 4.2? Out of curiosity (sorry if it's off-topic) what optimisations are you using?

As for the new binaries, they did seem a bit faster to me, though I wasn't sure. Crunching is going smoothly :)

My G5 appears to complete a WU in the same amount of time with either 1.12 or 1.13. My MacBookPro Core Duo, though, takes about 5% less time with 1.13 than it did with 1.12.

No apparent errors or problems with the G5, G4, MGP, or old iMac (333MHz)

The two mine have done (so far) are about a minute faster (~13:38 vs 14:30-15:10).

So far my dual G5, running BOINC v5.4.9 under “Tiger”, is looking just about 5% faster with v1.13.

part of the reason that the work units are running faster is that Nate put in some wrong parameters for the wedge of the sky it's calculating over. we'll be updating the binaries again in another day or two with the new stuff (so times should be back to what they were before). i'll also be starting up some convolution searches soon, and these workunits should take much much longer.
