I have a WU that seems to be in error
MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation v0.66 (mt)
using 3 cores at 3.2 Ghz and the time to completion is increasing faster than the elapsed. Right now elapsed is 1:57:03 and to completeion is 4:15:45 and climbing, should I abort this WU?
task is 18273137
wu is 14143751

The time estimates are pretty off so whatever time limit it tends to estimate should be better.

The normal for these type of runs (3 CPU cores) has been 5 to 30 minutes. This one I suspended after nearly 2 hours. I figure I need to abort unless someone says differently because it almost looks like it is stuck in an infinite loop.

The actual times can vary drastically depending on the search parameters.

One of my current tasks is going to be 25 hours. Usually they run 1-6 hours and go up to 40 hours for me.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.
