The NBody simulation code completely ignores the BOINC preferences for network availability. When I suspend all network activity, the Milkyway app will still try to upload its result when finished. This needs to be fixed.

Should mention I'm using boinc 6.10.45 x86_64. All other projects that I'm attached to respect the network preferences.

This isn't something milkyway controls.

Maybe, but I can prove that BOINC does this. There is a bug somewhere, even if it's not in the milkyway code specifically.

I think I figured out why I'm observing these messages. The milkyway@home applications do not generate a result file, but instead they put the result in the stderr section of the scheduler request (reporting as complete). There is no result file to upload.
