Default Weird folding WU

My daytotal kept on dropping day after day, and I'm even below 30 points a day now.
A little bit strange with more then 10 active folding rigs if you ask me :-)
The disadvantage is that almost none of those rigs are at my home, so I can't check what's wrong if necessary.
But today I passed by one of my folding rigs and it was working on a very strange WU
name: 1tsb/pd/h1tstxyz.
Progress: 200/6000
I mean, wtf? 6000?
I can't find anything about it, and it looks it will take about 2-3 weeks to finish this one.
The settings are set to preference Fah, so it can't be a WU from another project.

Anyone an explanation? And if this would be normal, will this one give me a zillion points or so afer finishing?

I think you've got a gnome. You get points for it, but not for folding (but for gnome hitparade i think).

If you don't specify you only want to fold proteins, you're going to receive a gnome now and then.

But that option is set at that machine. That's what I find strange.
Or maybe with the server problems it chose a gnome, after retrying for a certain amount of time getting a fah?

Anyway, if it is a fah protein, with 6000 progress, would it be worth a lot?

if you fold a gnome protein with the FAH client you DO get credited for it and it will appear in your FAH stats

fyi

But if it takes 2 or 3 weeks, do you get more points for a gnome ???

nope
they are not worth it in my humble opinion

and since I'm participating in the F@H project I don't appreciate them sending genome work my way :/
