I was checking my WU progress tonight and I found this in my messages:

6/19/2011 8:00:06 PM Enigma@Home Started download of wx_m3_b_214_aa_zz_1
6/19/2011 8:00:06 PM Enigma@Home Started download of m3_rxpsb70_p7_pt13
6/19/2011 8:00:07 PM Enigma@Home Finished download of wx_m3_b_214_aa_zz_1
6/19/2011 8:00:07 PM Enigma@Home Finished download of m3_rxpsb70_p7_pt13

I checked my Tasks, and neither are there, nor are they in my Transfers either.

I'm wondering if they aren't "empty" WUs, as they only took a second each to completely download?

I'm using BOINC 6.10.60 on a Win7 64-bit machine (Core2 Quad Q8400) w/8GB RAM.

Anyone have an idea or two, or am I the only one that's seed this?

When checking Tasks, make sure to use the "Show all tasks" option (the button then says "Show active tasks", the button shows the option you have, not the state it is in). I'm sure any missing tasks will then show up.

By default BOINC shows only the active tasks --those running, waiting to run or suspended. It will not show those ready to start, waiting to report, uploading/downloading, as when the list of these waiting tasks is too big it can cause communication problems between the client and the GUI. Then the list of tasks is too big to show within the 1 second refresh RPC.
