2014-11-26 07:02:11.7656 (1384) [normal]: Reading input data ... ERROR: data missing at end of SFT#0 (GPS 949469977.000000) expected bin 285278, bin 285209 read from file '..\..\projects\einstein.phys.uwm.edu\h1_0158.40_S6GC1'

on h1_0158.35_S6GC1__S6BucketFU1UB_00469712_0

p.s.: Xeon with Win XP x64

p.p.s.: Got another one for the same application and that one seems to start properly, so it is most likely a damaged input file for this specific workunit / container file. File size on my HDD is 8445248 bytes (h1_0158.40_S6GC1)

XLAL function call failed (I/O error): ERROR: data missing at en

Some others failed too (the list includes the one above) :

h1_0189.10_S6GC1
h1_0160.20_S6GC1
h1_0158.40_S6GC1
h1_0137.95_S6GC1
h1_0145.65_S6GC1
h1_0172.50_S6GC1
h1_0215.15_S6GC1
h1_0148.75_S6GC1
h1_0172.35_S6GC1
h1_0144.10_S6GC1

No trouble with :

h1_0101.80_S6GC1
h1_0147.70_S6GC1
h1_0068.00_S6GC1
h1_0150.70_S6GC1
h1_0110.85_S6GC1
h1_0097.10_S6GC1

Others have the same errors, so it is not my host that causes them.
Linux hosts have the same problem so it is not a CR/LF and/or EOF character issue.

This error came up over at Albert and was causing a lot of failures.

It was fixed in version 1.05 (Albert work unit number) as I had no trouble with them when this version was released, on both Windows 32 bit and Linux 64 bit.

Probably this is just how the

Probably this is just how the same error looks on a Windows 7 host, but as it looks a little different I'll post a link to it:

http://einsteinathome.org/task/467842656

The first obviously alarming line reads:
The target internal file identifier is incorrect.

but a bit later one does see:2014-11-26 06:13:03.9774 (5004) [normal]: Reading input data ... ERROR: data missing at end of SFT#0 (GPS 949469977.000000) expected bin 308651, bin 308609 read from file '..\..\projects\einstein.phys.uwm.edu\h1_0171.40_S6GC1'

which matches other error reports posted here closely.

This isn't very alarming. It's just the BOINC Client trying to interpret the applications exit code (114) as if it was a Windows system error (which it usually isn't).
