I put a note about this in the website forum yesterday as it didn't seem to be interfering with crunching, but... After deleting several 'phantom' computers last nite, I found two more in my account today. Valid CPID 1134 has spawned two new phanton id's:
3792 and
3818 the difference being that now these two 'phantom' boxes have been assigned wu's that the real box knows nothing about?

Not here. It happened to me quite regularly on another project, though, until they updated further to a later revision of BOINC server. So I beg the question, which revision are you on?
