I think Mini-GeekĀ“s suggestion is definitely worth to be considered.
Another alternative could be, when a exponent expires, to warn the assignee that his/er assignment is no longer valid, and as such will not be accepted by the server in the future, and suggesting that the work should be interrupted and another work unit be requested from the server.
I am of the opinion that these cases shall be dealt with in a manner that "penalizes" the original assignee that let the exponent expire, as he/she has already have the chance to do the task, and not the new assignee that has done his lot and is delivering a finished test to the server in due time.
There is no perfect solution, though. I acknowledge that fact.
