Bug#513884: boinc-manager: does not automatically abort WUs over deadline time

Package: boinc-manager
Version: 6.2.18-1
Severity: normal

I got some WUs with deadline set to Jan 30 there were still in elaboration, but
the project didn't grant no credit since overdued. So a lot of cpu time was
wasted instead of producing results.

I think the expected behaviour is to abort a WU if the current time is > then
deadline time. A more advanced policy is to abort a WU that has

    current_time + remaining_time > deadline_time
