Concerning the BOINC-elapsed-time and actual-elapsed-time discrepancy: It seems to be possible to scrape the actual elapsed time from the Stderr output. Not sure how difficult/impossible that is in practice, or if this method has its own problems. Example here: https://imgur.com/rqaIZAj

I don't know if its possible, but it would be nice to see the actual no-kidding elapsed time of the tasks. Looking at the 13-thread stats I see an average of 19.8 hours, but it's only taking me around 8.5 hours to run the tasks. BOINC just downloads more tasks than I can run and they sit queued up, which apparently counds towards elapsed time. And unfortunately just dividing CPU time by number of threads doesnt give an accurate elapsed time either (~6.5 in my case, which is 2 hours less than the actual elapsed time I am seeing).
