Why does BOINC constantly asks for GPU-work in projects where there is no GPU-app?

It's frustrating, BOINC is so utterly dumb, it fails to grasp that only very few projects have GPU-applications. I constantly get this here:

Fr 03 Sep 2010 22:14:18 CEST	eon2	Requesting new tasks for GPU
Fr 03 Sep 2010 22:16:44 CEST	CPDN Beta	Requesting new tasks for GPU

And as WUs are rare for some projects, and even after such a senseless attempt BOINC waits for the next question for real work on CPUs, I'll miss out on those.
Is there any way to tell BOINC on a per project base not to ask such stupid things?

It's really not as stupid as it seems. GPU work is still new to BOINC and more and more projects are adding GPU Apps. BOINC is just making sure it doesn't miss something.
