I noticed that, despite the fact that I've had several tasks instantly fail lately... there was one task that appeared to instantly process and I got full credit for it. The results log doesn't even show that a GPU was involved!

Could somebody with a bit more knowledge, please take a look at this task, and explain what happened?

Also, if something is not working correctly, could a developer look into fixing it so that the result success is better safeguarded? It seems to me that this could really muddy your successful result list.

Thanks, nice find. Luckily (at least for us :-) this seems a once-only. Probably the BOINC client did not delete intermediate checkpoint files.
