I thought I should post my experiences with 3.1.3:
I've been using PRPnet 3.1.3 a bit, and while it all worked just fine in sending and receiving work on my local box, when I tried to run it from another machine on my network, the client would only understand a portion of what the server was sending. The rest were, like what is apparently happening here, being marked as reserved on the server, but not being received and run on the client. Getting "Candidate and/or test was not found" was pretty rare, but would happen with the entire batch whenever it did (4 such batches over ~4000 tests). I checked the server logs for one such candidate, and here's it's story: (as the server knows it)
Code:
prpserver.log:

[2010-01-21 18:11:27 GMT] Test of 809997332*3^10319-1 for user tim.sorbera@gmail.com and client dad2 has expired.
(a few more assignments/expirations every 5 minutes, then:)

I had about 22000 candidates loaded into the server.

Now, in response to the recent change:
I can now get and return work on both computers, but now on both I sometimes (pretty often, maybe every 5-10 times I communicate) get the "No available candidates" message. I know there are fewer candidates, but it's not THAT much less!
