I have been getting a lot of errors lately. They systematically all come from WUs of the modfit fixedangles type. They all immediately crash after startup. This is in the log

<core_client_version>7.2.42</core_client_version>

I assumed it was a bad batch of WUs, but was surprised to see that it was not discussed here (at least I could not find any discussion). Is anybody else having this problem? I have this problem on both my GPUs running Milkyway. I have an openSUSE Leap 42.1 OS with fglrx 15.201.1151 and 15.300.1025.

Same here. And I'm running win7. Checking the tasks they seem to be failing for everyone. Regardless of OS, GPU vendor or even CPU task.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the report. Was a bad parameter file, sorry.

Seems a bit better. Now only some of them fail :-)
The active discussion on this issue seems to be in the "No More Work From Modfit Project" thread.
