I don't know what will happen. The validator works fine when quorum=2 and we have 2 or more Results returned. It seems to get confused if we only send one WU out and require only one back. If we get this fixed it's possible that the pending credit will be awarded. It's also possible that it's just lost.
But the work your computer did helping us find and specify the bug is much more than jus the credit you would have got.

The text is written with fixed size fonts, and the size and placement was chosen to work on the full screen. So it gets truncated on the "Show Graphics" window.

In a future version we hope to use "texture mapped" fonts that will scale with the screen size and look better.

I also have some WU with credit still pending since early november. They have just been sent to me, so I don't know if they will ever be validated.

If they are from early November and have not been credited by now then I expect they never will. But keep in mind that this is a test project and that we value your assistance even if you don't get numerical credit for particular WU's.

That's why I reported the error, not because I am looking for the credit.

I noticed a similar thing in some of my pending workunits. Some of them were processed by three people (me included), and all have finished and reported. My two colleagues were granted credit but mine is pending for a good while. I think I might have reported them beyond the deadline, but I don't know if that was the problem.
