Hello Einstein team

This may be by design, but the same workunit has been submitted twice in a row to my computer. Is there no check ensuring that a workunit is not submitted twice to the same user?

ResultID: 178316 and 178317
Computer: 838

Yours

This seems to be happening to

This seems to be happening to several people (myself included) see this thread and the others mentioned in it:

also, the question is answered here (Thanks, Bruce):

This implies that there is a new version of the client software that will fix it, but I can't see how that would work, unless it just rejects duplicate WU's. I'd think the fix would be on the server side.

Correct: fix was on the server side. We had misconfigured a switch that was supposed to ensure that no user got multiple results from the same workunit. It's fixed now (since Saturday or Sunday last weekend).
