Hi Steffen, hi Thibaut,

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[1]. 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.
