Hi,

I recently crunched a bunch of pps_llr WUs on my Linux host. Almost all of them were valid, except the following three:
http://www.primegrid.com/orig/result.php?resultid=87160438
http://www.primegrid.com/orig/result.php?resultid=87160193
http://www.primegrid.com/orig/result.php?resultid=87160125

There is a common pattern between these failures: All these three results were interrupted due to (normal) boinc shutdown and restarted later. After that they ran to completion without any error but obviously something went wrong as the validator declared them invalid. I didn't find any valid task that has been interrupted and restarted, therfore I'm quite sure that there must be an issue whith checkpointing (does this app even checkpoint) or restarting (not from the beginning).

Any ideas?
