Bug#377233: boinc-manager: Completion timer running backwards

Package: boinc-manager
Version: 5.4.10-1
Severity: normal

I recently moved away from only running SETI clients, and started a
climate prediction client.  This client takes much longer to complete a
workset, and so I've actually looked at some of the stats a bit more.

The CPU timer progresses in the manner you expect (increasing CPU time
as calculations progress).  But the "To completion" timer is odd.  There
are times when the To completion timer is running in lock step with the
CPU timer, and other times when it is decreasing as one expects.  When
it is running "backwards", it often is running backwards faster than
real time.

I have no idea what a real solution to this might be, certainly it isn't
important.  But it is kind of odd.
