Since nearly all wu' of the nbody-simulation failed in the last two hours I stopped crunching them. CPU-time could be used better.

At least the validation is running again and all that are not failing due to that 'Maximum elapsed time exceeded' error seem to get credit.

I'm running 10.5.8. Will the new WUs eventually work with an OS older than 10.6 or should I take my upgrade DVD closer to the top of my pile of "things to do" on my desk?

It should work eventually. I added something which might have fixed it last night, but I don't know if Travis has updated the binaries being sent out yet. I also don't have an old OS X to test on, so I don't know if it actually works yet. However, when the OpenCL applications are ready at some point in the future, you'll need 10.6 to use those.

Five days after that "fix", they still "crash on take-off". There seems to be no WUs available other than the nbody ones. All computers running OSX earlier than 10.6 will come to a grinding halt fairly soon... or keep returning one computing error after another.
