I'm running the boinc 5.10.45 and am seeing errors in the management of the disk quota.

Boinc manager is reporting:
145.03 MB used by boinc
139.18 MB used by the Rosetta project

in the messages the client reports that disk usage is limited to 16GB of disk space.

Then the client states that there is insufficient disk space and that 0 tasks were downloaded.

On occasion I can to get it to work by rebooting, restarting, and otherwise assaulting the application at which point it downloads the maximum number of work units allowed by Rosetta preventing further computation from any of my other clients.

Is this a known issue?
Can I turn off this buggy quota system?

Thanks

What are your disk quota settings?

What is the total space on your disk used by anything? (i.e., do the operating system, other applications, media files, plus boinc exceed 16GB?).

There are three different disk settings:

Leave at least X
Use at most Y
Use at most Z%

If I recall correctly. All must be good in order to download work.

Old wish from My Wish List - 2:
I'd like to see the Total Disk Usage pie chart divided into four instead of current 3 cakes - the free disk space part would be divided into parts "usable by BOINC" and "reserved for other programs", according to the venue's settings.

Currently the basic user may have hard time to find out, what portion of disk space is usable by Boinc projects according to the venue settings and current disk allocation state on particular computer. The only moments Boinc is telling this info are after the startup and after rereading changed global settings. But it is "hidden somewhere among the (initial) messages", what can be easily overlooked and could be either not available after the messages fill up, or not true anymore, when the disk fills up. And there's already such prominent place to show the information - in the Total Disk Usage table :-)
