I don\'t understand the \"-exit_when_idle\" and \"-return_results_immediately\" flags. Here is what I expect to happen:

I execute the code, download a data package, process the package, upload the results, and quit.

But this doesn\'t seem to be the case. After the package is processed, the main executable exits but boinc is still running, doing, as far as I can tell, absolutely nothing for all eternity. I have to kill the boinc process and re-execute in order to upload the processed data. And then it downloads a fresh package - which is exactly what I am trying to avoid. Am I missing something here?

I want to be able to define an appropriate walltime for a single job and then submit a batch of jobs via torque/moab to my cluster (just like you used to be able to do with S@H classic). Is this a preference issue, or was boinc somehow not designed to do something like this?
