[FP-Ops] Bug in Ver. 6.34 with the newer WU's.

I posted this at the FAH forum today.

Every month or so after returning a successful WU, the client (Ver. 6.34) is unable to get a new WU unless I go to the FAH folder and delete the work folder, unitinfo.txt file, queue.dat file and myfolding.html file. Then I restart the client and it grabs a WU and folds like a champ. I know it is not a connectivity issue as this blade also runs a GPU client which works normal. Also it happens occasionally to the GPU client when not happening to the SMP client. Here is the log example and any insight into the cause would be appreciated.

Folding@Home Client Shutdown.  
 

Intel core i7 2600 @ 3.40Ghz(stock speed, not oc'd) Geforce GTX 550 Ti, 8GB mem. all stock nothing overclocked. Windows 7 x64, Eset NOD32 AV, nothing else. bare bones. Use a Zalman CPU cooler, temps are not an issue. folds fine just occasionally can't grab a new WU.

Here is the response by Joe H. site mod.

This is a bug that has been reported several times before for the V6 client. Your solution is basically what others have done to start getting work again. One topic where this was reported is viewtopic.php?f=18&t=23849 as persons have initially thought it was a server problem. Since V6 is no longer being worked on, this is unlikely to be fixed.

Looks like I am just going have to deal with it for now as it only happens occasionally. Looks like one day soon we are going to have to figure out a way for Ver. 7 to work because maybe Ver.6 won't work well anymore at least with windows.

Some times the 6.34 linux client has issues like this, but my scripts monitor the system load. If the system load drops to zero - as when the client is not folding - the script restarts the client. And we get a new work unit.

I have not needed to delete the files you mention above. I am wondering if you were to shutdown the windows client, and simply restarted if it would get it going again. Or maybe you already tried that?

Yes, I tried that the 1st time I encountered this a couple months ago and it didn't work at least in windows. I then went to the FAH forum and found a thread on this and the only fix was the above procedure at least in windows. Hasn't happened on the Linux box yet.
