I have two WUs that have over 2.5 and over 4 hours work done on each. But, less than 3% is complete on either. The estimate for time to completion keeps growing and each is due in about 1.5 days. Suggestions?

This is normal if you are switching back and forth to other applications...the progress bar will continually reset it self but the checkpoints will resume where it left off so it will still finish in time with no loss of work.

I thought I had read that elsewhere, but was not sure if it applied to what I was seeing. The WUs have since finished and been reported to the server.
