Default Error while Computing

My system: i5 3570K @ 4.4GHz, 16GB 2400MHz RAM
Windows 7 sp1 (Home Premium)
Fully stability tested using Prime95 and Intel Burn Test.

BOINC Manager default settings (except to only use 75% of cores)

The problem: Tasks involving 16e Lattice Sieve v1.08 (notphenomiix6) all fail at initialization (<= 2sec CPU time). If I set BOINC Manager to use 100% / 100% memory the odd task will run seemingly at random.

All other task types, including 16e Lattice Sieve V5 run fine.

Checking in Task manager less than 6 of the 16GB are being used. I also see that v1.08 uses about 32MB more memory than V5 when it does run, but that is still less than 1GB per 16e task.

Any suggestions as to why this is happening and any fixes please?

I see you have plenty of memory to run the 16e V5 units.
Checking your errors, the ones run in less than 3 seconds are faulty wu's. You can see it just by clicking on the work unit detail. Same error happens on different machines so I think it is better to tell Greg that some wu's were faulty but I think at the end it won't matter.

About the 16e Lattice Sieve V5 v1.11 errors I don't have a clue.

The 16e V5 wu's fail on OSX 10.7.

Not an error but my work machine (64-bit) is using/downloading the 32 bit version of the 14e application. Not sure why this is happening, any clues? My home machine looks fine using the 14e 64-bit application version.
