Hello, I can help. The problem is not with BOINC but with the Einstein folks who apparently have forgotten to set the executable
flag for their executables. Or some newer version of BOINC ruins that? No idea. The developers know about it, at least. Please
sudo chmod +x /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/einstein*/einstein*S6*

This also affects the one or other Mac-running contributor to E at H. Surprisinglyl, all other projects and Win* platforms seem fine.
But the latter execute everything ending with .exe, right?
