1) Message boards : Number crunching : Hard to get new work ! (Message 1514)

I have 3 stuck downloads at this time. I checked the client_state.xml file to see which directory the parameters files should be in, and all 3 parameter files are either missing from their respective directories or have permission problems so they cannot be accessed.

The stuck downloads belong to these Workunits and Directories:

2034400 with the parameter file listed in directory 3e6
2034473 with the parameter file listed in directory 219
2034512 with the parameter file listed in directory 1eb

I have enough work to last a couple of hours, but when that runs out I will have to abort the downloads, so the client can get more work.
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Problems downloading Stars and Volume files (Message 215)

Even if you get stars.txt and volume.txt to download, once you run out of tasks they are deleted from the project directory. So now when more tasks become available, stars.txt and volume.txt will have to be downloaded again.

If stars.txt and volume.txt are the same for all tasks, shouldn't they be set as non-delete in the server configuration? I solved this by making those two files read-only, but if the project changes them then all tasks will fail for me.

Here are the two messages in the boinc log showing that the project tried to delete these files when I ran out of work:
