As stated, i found myself without tasks every 25-40min for decent 10min before i'm given another pool of 300 tasks;
Scheduler reports finished tasks every 91 sec, but gets 0 new tasks.


Help?

Sounds like you are running separation on a GPU. 300 tasks is all we ever get in this case. This has been an issue since as long as I have been here. As an experiment, try this. When your GPU Que runs dry. (I'm using BoincTasks 1.78) Select projects for that que, then right click on the Milkyway@Home line, and select update. Do this just after the status column, which says "Deferred for HH:MM:SS" counts down to zero and then disappears. Sometimes I need to repeat this, but usually not. Now, if only someone would write a simple script to do this when a dry que is detected.....

We are discussing possible workarounds here.
