BOINC just uploaded completed WU's (Feb 28 05)and requested more, showing the following 2 received on BOINC's work tab.

H1_1152.9_1153.1_0.1_T01_Test02_3
H1_1152.9_1153.2_0.1_T01_Test02_1

Checking Results in my account shows that 4 new WU's were sent on Feb 28, all with a March 7 deadline. My Account Results show the following WU's sent, but they missing from the BOINC work Tab:

H1_1152.9_1153.4_0.1_T00_Test02
H1_1152.9_1153.0_0.1_T01_Test02

BOINC Messages Log shows the first request attempt to the scheduler failed, though the completed WU's uploaded OK because credit was received for them. when the second and subsequent requests to the scheduler succeeded.

What happened? Will these sent but missing WU's show up on the next request for work, or is there a glitch in the DB software?

Neither -- there is a problem with the BOINC core client. I'll post some information about this in the FAQ during the next day. Provided that you are currently returning successful results, and the DB does not show you with dozens of copies of the same computer, you can safely ignore this problem for now.

Thanks for the prompt reply, Bruce.

Sucessful results are being returned and the account shows only the one computer in the DB.

Would like to add that having read about the LIGO Livingston Observatory in Scientific American about a year ago, it's fantastic to be able to contribute in some small way to the projects search for gravitational radiation.
