Why are there different sizes of work-units for Windows and Mac? On my windows machine (http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/results.php?hostid=2423) I receive work units that grant appr. 1.15 credits while on my Macs (http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/results.php?hostid=2420) there are only much smaller work units that grant only 0.63 credits.

currently the workunits are all of the same size. the problem might be that your mac is crunching the numbers a lot faster (esp if it's a 64 bit one) so you're not getting as much credit. right now i'm working on updating the validator to have fixed credit per work done, so this should be fixed soon.
