I currently have several workunits that haven't started running yet, but still have an estimate of the remaining runtime of 00:00:00. Does your software have problems with such workunits, such as halting them after the actual runtime exceeds 1000 times this much? Or is this shorthand for saying these workunits are allowed to run forever?

The best I can tell, the workunits with an estimated runtime of 00:00:00 never start running, so should I abort all of them? I'll let them keep trying to run overnight first, though, to check if the client only makes them the last workunits it will start.

They run perfectly normally here, in FIFO order as usual. Last time I noticed any (they come in batches), they actually ran for around 40 seconds, IIRC. Future estimates can get a bit screwed up, especially with older clients that still use DCF, but it all sorts itself out again over time.

They finally ran last night, taking about 2 minutes each.
