Eric,

While the scheduler here is restricted to 6.1.x clients only, no updates at all come to the previous versions of BOINC. It gets even worse, my BOINC has forgotten that I am in a team, it doesn't show that info anymore in BOINC Manager->Projects.

Bug in BOINC or side-effect of scheduler restrictions?

Both.

Thanks for reminding me that I'd put in the scheduler restriction at the scheduler level. I've switched that out and lowered the min level to 5.4 again.

If the scheduler rejects the connection based on version number then there is no RPC exchange, and the client looses track of what team you are in. That's a bug in the client (IMHO). If there is not a ticket for it already then we should create one (but I may have done so, I don't remember).

I couldn't find any, so I made a new one.
