Forgive me if I missed something, but I didn't see any recent thread addressing this issue...

I've gotten several of these types of errors recently. The exit status is "1 (0x1) Unknown error number" and the stderr output includes a line similar to "Special q 51312847 does not divide". These have shown up on three Win7-64 machines (one AMD and two Intel). The host most limited by RAM is a quad-core with 4GB. A fourth host (a C2D, WinXP-32, 3GB) has had no errors but has only completed 8 WU's.

That happens on a restart from a bad checkpoint. For some reason, the write of the last lines to the file were truncated. Unless it's happening very often, you can ignore it. On a host with 4 GB memory, I recommend disabling the lasievef and lasieve5f apps in your NFS@Home preferences.

Thanks for the feedback, Greg. I've modified the host preferences for my quad-core to exclude the "f" and "5f" apps.

I've had a few of these as well, but I have plenty of free ram(16GB).
