I just returned a pretty long work-unit (34 minutes, wu_1204273265_28_0_0). Unfortunately it does not appear on my account page and no credit was added to my Total. Is it lost?

I think that Wormholio stopped some parts of the database from showing up, to make it more stable for the time being. Showing task details, pending credits etc. takes quite a bit of database 'time' to show in real time. With the DB already being that wobbly, it's probably better to temporarily being available.

Work isn't lost, while you'll be credited when your task has met the quorum and the validator has passed over it.

Yes, that can happen with the way this round of testing is set up. It bases the fraction done on the idea that it will run for an hour. But if it's not done with the simuilation after an hour it will continue on to finish it, and then quit. So it's possible to go slightly over, but that also indicates that it should just be finishing up.

Yep, I even saw 235% shortly before it finished. Very weird...

Since years I was investigating, now I'm sure:
