Preliminary Change Log 7.6.5 -> 7.6.6

  • Mac installer: make my changes for OS 10.11 El Capitan compatibility work with branded versions of BOINC (GridRepublic, etc.)
  • client: fix bug in computing elapsed time when CPU throttling.
When CPU throttling was in effect, we were accumulating elapsed time at about half the correct rate.
  • MGR: Prevent crash on Windows with the menu disabling code. Revisit when more time is available.
  • client (Win): when read stderr.txt, wait for write lock to be release first.
Apparently, on Win, there is still a write lock on stderr.txt, and its buffer isn't flushed, until shortly after the app process exits. This is bizarre, but so be it.
