When you first go into the screensaver, the location icon that shows you the point in the sky it is scanning is a large yellow cross hairs icon. However, if you leave the screensaver and then return to the graphic again, the icon turns into a small orange almost translucent dot about half the size of the original icons. It remains that way unless BOINC is restarted and then it revert back to the cross-hairs.

Unfortuantely I didn't catch the 2nd WU to see if it launched (in the graphic) with the yellow cross-hairs. =/

This was only the second time I managed to catch Pirates in action. Most of the time I don't see it till I check the work tab and see 100% done. If I can more than one WU again and I catch it, I'll watch the launch of subsequent WUs.

Best,
