Since upgrading to 6.6.17 from 6.4.5, I'm seeing a constant the image files redownload with each scheduler request.

Last request before the upgrade

22-Mar-2009 13:02:55 [Pirates@Home] Sending scheduler request: To fetch work. Requesting 16975 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks
22-Mar-2009 13:03:00 [Pirates@Home] Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks

Thanks for the reports.

Is this something you think is specific to this site? Something I need to look at in the configuration?

Or is it something specific to this version of BOINC (which is the current alpha test release, right?) and should be reported to the alpha test list (too)?

I did report it to the alpha list. David's response is as follows:

David Anderson wrote:
Pirates@Home sends 2 <file_info>s that aren't used;
the client starts downloads for these, then aborts them
(this behavior is new).
This doesn't cause any problems, and AFAIK happens only with Pirates.

I checked in a change so that the client immediately discards
unused <file_info>s.

I'm glad to see that our mis-configured server can continue to be an aid to BOINC debugging.
