See http://pirates.vassar.edu/workunit.php?wuid=22554

Two copies sent out and returned, one ran for 187 seconds, reports 187 seconds and .22 credit. The other ran for 82 seconds, reports 0 CPu and zero credit, and both get 0 credit?

Here's another


Sent out three times, all three ran for a while, two report CPU time and claim credit. One reports 0 CPU and 0 credit, so all three get 0 credit?

Seems to me that the validator needs some work!

dunno if Wormholio has noticed and afaik nobody has posted this on the boards but (unlike in seti) when a quorum of 3 is used, after two results are back then the lower of the two credits is granted. Any other results returned afterwards will receive the already granted credit. So if you have a result with 0 credit you should *try* not to return it until 2 others have returned.
