Some good news from David:

I will implement your idea of retaining reported tasks for 1 minute;

So the new BOINC client should be better at handling the History without misses.

Good initiative!

Let's see how will it cope with 1-task nCi projects, which immediately deliver and start a new task upon reporting the previous one. If the old task will just stay 1 more minute in a "Reported" state, all will be just fine.

I was just alerted by BoincTasks to upgrade to version 1.25. I upgraded as usual but this version will not work for me. When I try to start it I get nothing but an empty white screen. Tried uninstall and reinstall, same problem. Reinstalled version 1.16 and it works fine.
Win XP Pro SP3. Boinc version 6:10:58  32bit.

I'd suggest 1.21 for the most stable version or 1.28 if you're a bit more adventurous.  Everything between was troublesome here, including the symptoms you describe.  To use 1.28 I have to disable the long term history (new feature).  It also does not handle machines with flaky connections (such as weak WiFi) as well as 1.21.  1.28 often has to be restarted (and sometimes crashes) when machines lose connection for any reason (WiFi, reboot, crash, etc.).  Fred, do you want more dmp files?  I sent one a while ago but haven't heard if you found anything interesting.

Oeps forgot that one.
They all point to the same problem, but now, what causes it.

Move over to V 1.29.

What you can do is set memory integrity checking

In log.xml set <heap_check> to 1
