Has anyone else noticed a display issue in the Task tab in advanced view, where the last active item does not update automatically? The last item, regardless of current sort order, is always stuck at the same progress and elapsed time, etc. Need to re-sort the list or click on the stuck task to refresh it...

Debian Stable (Jessie)
Boinc Manager 7.4.23+dfsg-1
The behavior is the same in different desktops (KDE, Gnome, Xfce)

Windows versions do not have this issue.

On 7.6.22 i can not replicate this. (lightdm)

Does the behaviour change if you show only active tasks or resize the window size?

Edit: jessie/sid btw

The Manager in 7.4.23 is buggy. I sent a message asking for BOINC in Jessie to be updated. I would imagine the package maintainers to update it soon.

I think wartherd already found a better working Manager but for others stopping by.

BOINC 7.6.31 is now in Jessie backports repository. To enable backports open Software Sources and select backports. You need to update the package list with package manager before seeing the new package. You also need to actually select the new version in package manager, it is not installed or updated automatically.
