I've got a series of workunits that all report as having taken zero time to compute in my task list, and yet are all being granted credit. I'm not complaining, mind you, but it has piqued my curiosity.

Is this a known issue on PPC Macs? How can Enigma's validator validate these WUs when the crunch-time is zero? And what is it basing the credit grants on if not the WU's crunch time?

TIA

Runtimes are known for all 8 types of workunits, so credits are granted based on information from workunit templates, not CPU time.
The MAC version of wrapper has a bug, it doesn't return CPU time to the boinc core client, that's why it reports "0" to the server.
