It is easy to see something is wrong with some of the recent workunits - just look at the results returned for a workunit for which you get an error. For example:
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/workunit.php?wuid=1499638353
All the users got the exact same error with this workunit:
Error loading Lua script 'astronomy_parameters.txt': [string "number_parameters: 4..."]:1: '<name>' expected near '4'
Switching to Parameter File 'astronomy_parameters.txt'
<number_WUs> 5 </number_WUs>
<number_params_per_WU> 21 </number_params_per_WU>
Number of parameters doesn't make sense
18:05:21 (6400): called boinc_finish(1)

So this is clearly a problem with either the workunit or with the application processing it.
