Default Computer details showing wrong info

I have a machine that is processing TF-LMH and the site is showing the current job as "115447957" however the real job is "122723087". The cpu hasn't been processing 115447957 for about 2 weeks now. It is a single core machine running Linux and used to have stability problems but i upgraded the Linux distribution and everything seems ok now.

Is it possible to get the website to update itself so that the correct number is displayed next to the exponent that the computer is processing? Not that it really matters it just bugs me that the site has stopped reporting the correct work units being processed by the machine.

Is it possible that your client has not yet sent an update to the server telling it of the new assignment?

PrimeNet doesn't have a result from your machine for 115447957, so it thinks it's still a work in progress. I'd put it under the vague description of communication glitch, or maybe it had a "stability problem" at just the wrong moment.

If you can, submit the result using the manual results page. If that's not possible (or you did but 115447957 is still assigned to you, which you can check on the assignments page) then unassign it using the assignments page.
