I got the same issue with the work preference, has it been fixed?
I have headache due to the behavior of "World Community Grid". I have set BOINC on my computers to use web based work preferences. Normally they use the settings i made in bam.boincstats. But as soon as a client gets an update from WCG, the prefs for this client are overwritten by WCG settings until the client connect for an update to BAM. After this update the settings are corrected to use BAM based prefs... until the next project update from WCG... and so on...

BOINC version here is 7.6.33 (x64).
Well... i can chose the client to use local settings, or i can use web/BAM based settings... but is it possible to fix or force the client to a specific web based prefs profile, to avoid them being overwritten from any project? Or is there a way to force project prefs to the BAM prefs?
For now, i have configured my settings on WCG website to the same prefs i have set in BAM... but to be honest, i really don't like to call this a "solution". ;-)
Please tell me, there IS a better solution, and i just don't see ist! :-D
Thanks in advance and kind regards
