My computer downloaded tasks for seven days, which resulted in a large list of tasks to crunch (about 60 I think).
The completion time for each Proth task was about 18 hours (according to boinc manager), which climbed to 19 hours later. I calculated, that this large list will never finish within a week.
Because I didn't want to allocate tasks which I'm not able to finish in time, I cancelled most of them (about 40 tasks).
The next morning, the remaining Proth tasks had a completion time of ~9 hours each and the finished ones only needed 3-4 hours, so I guess I didn't had to cancel all those jobs after all, right? :-/
The completion time is really weird...

The first estimate is bad for all projects, not only PrimeGrid. Nobody knows exactly how fast your computer will finish work. The more you have been processed, the better the prediction, because your boinc-client corrects the time, which is submitted by the project.
