The OpenCL section of the Nvidia 364.72 driver, and earlier 364.* drivers, has a problem which can cause an entire computer to lock up, or cause a few dozen OpenCL tasks (often not all from the same BOINC project) to give a quick Compute Error. Problem not seen in the 362.00 driver.

Tasks from POEM@home seem the most likely to trigger this problem.

I have not yet seem this problem for any Collatz Conjecture tasks, but you might want to watch for it.

The 365.10 driver is now available, and does not fix that problem.
