FC15 x86_64 boinc won't connect to localhost

I have just used yum to install boinc.

I run 'boinc' in one terminal, then run 'boincmgr' in another terminal. boincmgr shows 'Disconnected' in the status bar.

If I click on 'Tools/Attach to project or account manager', the status changes to 'Connecting to localhost', thinks for a few seconds, then goes back to 'Disconnected'

This happens whether I have the firewall enabled or disabled.

Any ideas, folks?

Ah! More info:
I ran boinc_client from a terminal and struck a buffer overflow error which caused the client to abort. See attached file boinc-run.txt
Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Re: FC15 x86_64 boinc won't connect to localhost

Found this is a known bug

Solution to get the client started is to run (as root):
Code:
service boinc-client start
Although this service is supposed to start automatically for runlevel 5 it did not seem to do this last time I booted. May be a transient, or I may have to manually start it each time. The service is listed in /etc/rc5.d as 'K02boinc-client'.
***EDIT***
The 'K' stands for 'Kill' - I should have remembered that! Doh! Solution was 'sudo chkconfig boinc-client on'.

THEN, to get the manager to run, I have to run it as root, either via 'sudo boincmgr', or by logging in as root and running it directly.

Thank you linesmen, thank you ball-boys.
