Yes that is the general idea. It took me some time but I've now posted
packages of BOINC 5.8.16 to our repository. This version does exactly what
Steffen proposed, it only resets projects if statefile.platform_name is not
empty. Thibaut, it would be nice if you could build 5.8.16 on amd64 and check
if it really fixes #407461.

:-) I fully agree.
Thanks and regards,
