So I think I've got a plan class working that should prevent windows XP hosts from downloading workunits and causing errors for everyone else. If anyone with a windows XP host could try and download some work and see if it's not allowing it I would appreciate it so I know things are working.

Well apparently my Windows XP computer wants to help you out Travis as it has downloaded another two work units after I aborted the two I already had.

Hmm, it did that with the v0.14 app. Maybe I need to restart the daemons.

It seems now to be working as I get the message now that there is no work available, when in fact there is.

Huzzah! Now people won't be getting invalid WUs due to XP boxes erroring out. :) Hopefully I can get a response from the BOINC lists with some ideas how to make it work on XP...
