Result logs contain the raw log data from the science application. Some of the messages marked as errors or warnings are benign and expected. Sometimes, these warnings can be misleading when a task fails for some other reason.
Some examples from normal logs:

Failed to get VersionInfo size: 1812
- A long-standing and completely harmless bug causes this common message.
INFO: No state to restore. Start from the beginning. ERROR: Restoring checkpoint failed. Unable to restore state!
- This message is generated because the application always checks to see whether work has already been started on the task, and attempts to continue from the last checkpoint.
Unrecognized XML in parse_init_data_file: computation_deadline Skipping: 1216101649.600000 Skipping: /computation_deadline
- This message is caused when older science applications encounter new BOINC settings. The message is harmless.
