I tend to try-out alpha and beta code sometimes, and happened to have one computer run in one partition, then another, then back again, but when attempting to merge the boinc results, I notice that I can't seem to merge the results of one computer, which ran two operating system versions.

At first, I thought it was simply due to naming, such as caps and lowercase: drivec, DRIVEC

but now, looking at additional info provided (improved server program I guess), there is more info to look at... called overlapping lifetimes.

Would it be able to force a merge on such a combination?
Would that be something worth improving on the server-side?
