It seems the DRH tasks come down in large groups, but if you decide to kill one of them to evade deadline problems, the project may respond by deleting the entire group, both the DRH tasks that have some hours of work and the ones that haven't started yet.

If you're having to kill them to avoid deadline problems, you'd be <far> better off correcting the mismatched buffer size <you> chose to set, then you wouldn't have to micro-manage it manually.

Boinc's scheduling isn't the greatest, but I haven't seen it miss deadlines unless machines are switched off to a greater extent than they usually are.

Actually I wasted a lot of time trying to adjust the buffer sizes. Nothing I can do about the random mix of deadlines they send and I gave up. That was way back when I cared.

Stopped by this time because of another 9-hour computation error. Still curious if those earn any credit. I thought this thread was where the useless link was posted last time I stopped by, but evidently not. I was going to note that the linked thread didn't actually say anything useful or informative, though obviously some other people were asking about the computation errors. I could do some more searching, but I've already cared enough for a few weeks.
