I request that you do one or the other, but not both, for the reasons previously discussed concerning the BOINC scheduler.
(I don't see any way to choose anything yet.)

Could you please clarify what you meant by "went off the rails?" Are they spitting out errors? Is the run-time too long?

Run time for me appears to be never-ending. After a while the percentage done stops advancing and the estimated time remaining starts climbing. Runs that were supposed to finish in 8 hours on 8 CPUs are still running after 2 days with over 1 day estimated time to completion. I've aborted anything estimated at over 5 hours to see if the shorter ones will complete.

One work unit estimated at under 4 hours is still running after 7:17 hours and stuck at 19.729% completed, estimated 1d 05:31 to completion (and climbing).

As far as I can tell my system has not completed a single non-GPU work unit since I restarted processing a week ago.
