Message 1057 - Posted: 2 May 2013, 17:45:07 UTC

How is it possible, that my result with 5043 seconds CPU time is marked as invalid, while a result with 0.02 seconds CPU time is valid and gets all the credit? Or, in the second example I am posting, I again get no credit for 2423 seconds of CPU time, while the unit that gets all the credit has 0.00 seconds CPU time.
What a ridiculous validation system!!!

Yeah, same here.
A closer inspection of your and my results gives the conclusion that Linux isn't validating against Windows - very bad...

It is true, the inconsistence is from results being generated on different platforms.
I will do something to fix it and re-grant the credit if possible!

The inconsistency problem on different platform is fixed! And the credit is re-granted to the mistreated Linux hosts!
