Task exited with zero status but no finished file

I'm getting the following messages in my logs occasionally.

It apparently happened this morning as well around 6:30 AM:

Attached are the complete logs for the last 24 hours (I rebooted my computer around this time yesterday). I have Googled this and found the following FAQ entry: »boincfaq.mundayweb.com/index.php ··· view=116 but it indicates that it is one of the more difficult errors to diagnose. From the first page of the Google results, this is showing up on other projects as well. Is anyone else seeing this? Note that these are generally CPU WUs as I have had the GPU suspended so I can watch movies on my computer without having to move the mouse every few minutes.

General consensus in other threads (for other projects of course) seems to indicate I need to tell BOINC to not use a CPU core as it might be a temperature or scheduling issue. I am using the stock Intel cooler on this currently and while I'm sure there is massive room for improvement, my other build with same components but a HyperTX3 cooler has similar CPU temps. I haven't yet checked to see if that computer or any of my others are seeing these errors but that's next on my agenda.

On a side note, I think I may know what's causing it. When I leave my computer alone for extended periods of time I've noticed the disk activity becomes constant. Now I suspected this was due to BOINC, especially how quickly it will churn through GPU WUs but I've had the GPU suspended so I doubt that's it. Plus the logs don't line up to upload/download of WUs and the high disk usage. I know if I try and use the computer while the disk usage is sky high, it lags badly so maybe it's affecting BOINC? I guess the next task would be to find out what is causing that as well.
