I am seeing work units that show 100% progress towards completion but continue running for days afterwards until their deadline passes and I finally abort them. I have a fresh un-virtualized install of Windows 10 Pro and a new RTX 3070. Anyoneelse4 seeing this?

I have one stuck at 100% for over 36 hours now on Windows 10 Pro Core I7with an RTX 1050.

Should I abort it?

Yes, please do!

For some unknown reason, some workunits will randomly not listen to their internal "seedspace" limits, meaning they'll search for cacti in a much wider area then they should.

If you have any tasks running 30-50% longer, and/or stuck at "100%" for a long time please abort, and then allow other tasks. We suspect it may be due to either memory errors, various sync (CPU/GPU) issues, or just bad luck. Out of thousands, or even tens of thousands of workunits/tasks, only a few encounter this issue making it incredibly hard to resolve.
