I've had 2 out of 3 NBody mt workunits stall out so far. I'm not sure what the issue is at my end or if there is a problem with the workunits.

Both workunits stop reporting progress and the CPU usage drops to zero (they are supposed to use 3 cores). I aborted both workunits. Incidentally, both of these workunits are from today's run. The workunit that validated was from the 02/03/2020 run.

Its seems like every multi-processor NBody unit I get will eventually stall out... I will close Boinc and all the jobs, open it back up, and they will start running again. I will typically have to do this about 3 or 4 times before the job completes. These only seem to happen on the jobs that require more than 1 CPU. If you have made any headway on a fix for this, please let me know. It's frustrating to know your computer has been idling for the past day like this. :(
