Windows Vista x64 SP2, Nvidia 181.20, 181.22, 185.20, GTX260, Boinc 6.4.5, 6.6.0, 6.6.2.
The behaviour is consistent:
After some time of successfull WU processing the next WU processing will not progress beyond between 0,000% and 0,500% progress. Workaround is allways a shutdown (verify that all boinc processes are exited first) and restart of boincmgr.
With version 6.6.0 the boincmgr will consume 100% cpu and not release and must be killed before boinc.exe has to be killed in order to release the WUs.
With version 6.2.2 the boincmgr will simply terminate alltogether if "Tasks"-folder is selected, so the 100% cpu utilization scenario is not possible to test properly with this version.
The WU-hang behaviour is not present when the abovementioned versions are on Windows Vista 32-bit.
