Due to popular demand and as I'm now pretty sure that the bug in the Linux App wouldn't show up here, I just started a build on the FreeBSD machine of a friend and found it working (with minor issues in BOINC). The resulting App is available as usual on our Beta Test page. This App only ran a single few seconds standalone test so far, so actual testing is up to you!

Is the machine loaded with

Is the machine loaded with regular jobs for up to 30 seconds at a time? Then this will happen. The boinc client and it jobs run on idleprio.

I wonder why it's only 30 seconds with Einstein, the default timeout is 60 seconds I think.

The machine isn't loaded without boinc. NICE process (einstein) take 99-100% CPU.
In profile I have Write to disk at most every 60 seconds - default.

Have you been watching the machine the 30 seconds before it logged the Restarting task event? Have it been busy only with einstein at that time, too?

Make sure you have misc/compat5x port installed when running on 6.X.

The FreeBSD app tends to fall

The FreeBSD app tends to fall into a strange state from time to time, when it's spending approx. 75% of time in syscalls, and it's not progressing or updating it's state in manager.

The truss shows it's polling file descriptor 4 *a lot*. FD 4 is a pipe connected to FD 5 on the same process. This pipe is present on the good running app, too, but no excessive polling on it.

Ideas? It's happening often enough to be annoying.
