1) Message boards : Number crunching : Wasted 1.6 million CPU seconds!!!!!!! (Message 62006)

I've 'switched off' Milky Way as a source of Tasks. I spent 1.6 million CPU seconds only for the Task to blow up 20 or so hours before the deadline. In the 'Number Crunching' Board I see plenty of concurrent references to Users with similar behaviour. But I haven't seen any explanation from Milky Way Experts.
Here's the message from the death of my exploding Task.

2) Questions and Answers : Windows : 'Remaining' incresing for several days (Message 61977)

The Task size is now increasing (approx.) by 1 second for every 5 seconds of Elapsed. The deadline is approx. 2.5 days in the future and the Remaining is approx. 43 hours. If it keeps behaving as is then the Task might just finish by the deadline. If, however the remaining were to start increasing by (say) 3 seconds for every 5 seconds of Elapsed then it wont make it.

Is this behaviour normal? what happens if the deadline is reached and the task is not finished?

Is it normal for 'Remaining' to increase steadily over many days? Has something gone wrong with the processing? What is the validity of the "Progress %" in these circumstances?

For Milky Way Task ID - "de-nbody-06-10-Orphan-Sim-2-1398336302-1425263-1" the "Remaining (est)" has been increasing for several days. The Elapsed figure is approximately 135 hours on 2 CPU Windows box.
