I keep seemingly randomly get a "ready to start" WU even with store at least and store up to an additional both set to 0 days of work.

Is that un-started WU already counting against me as a finder just sitting there ?

This is standard behaviour of the BOINC client.
It will fetch at some point when there is less than 300 seconds of work left, even if you define zero cache.
It's trying to ensure that the client doesn't end up idle if a server is unreachable, for example, and will still have time to ask a different project server for work.

Thank you. Pretty sure I ask this question before and just forgot :)
