For some reason, in my BOINC-wide team description, all the <br> render as &#xD; (in addition to adding a line). Weird thing is, this is not universal, as in some projects will render it correctly, while others will show "&#xD;".

Also, the team description stopped getting updated (or "distributed") among the various projects.

Example:

http://www.gpugrid.net/team_display.php?teamid=3180

http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/team_display.php?teamid=1209

http://lhcathome2.cern.ch/vLHCathome/team_display.php?teamid=2046

Yet it renders correctly in SETI & The Lattice Project, and of course the BOINC-wide team description:

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/team_display.php?teamid=144451

http://boinc.umiacs.umd.edu/team_display.php?teamid=3024

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/teams/team_display.php?teamid=2392


Weird, eh?

The display problem is probably due to a bug in the BOINC web code.
This is fixed, and some projects (like SETI@home) have this fix.
But others haven't updated their server code in a while.

I fixed the problem with the updates being stopped.
