I managed to get one of the WUs recently, and it was completed and returned almost 48 hrs ago, but is still pending. As far as I can tell, it was not issued to any other machines.

There seems to be a problem with the validator. We are just using
the sample_trivial_validator from the BOINC distribution, with a quorum of 1.
First and only WU back should get credit. But it's not working that way.

If 2 people get the WU and both return a Result then they get credit.
But not only 1. This is clearly a bug, and I'll report it to boinc_dev
once I check a few things and know enough to write a good report to the list.

We tried it last night with quorum=2 and that seems to work.
Testing continues...
