Backburner re-rendering same task endlessly?

I'm having a strange issue with Backburner and Maya that I cant seem to find a solution to:

I can get my job to submit and render across my network machines just fine, but say I set the task size to 10 frames... machine one will sit there and render frames 1-10 over and over while machine two will render frames 11-20 over and over.

It doesn't matter what size I set the task size to - 1 frame, or 30 frames, etc... they never seem to finish and get assigned the next set of frames.

Anyone ever encounter something like this? Thanks!

happened to me before.
I am not sure but I had can recall that backburner if he writes 0kb exr files he requeues them. And 0kb exr get's written due to a Maya bug. in the renderglobals there's an option for saying extension override, there tick it and just type exr. That solved the problem for me.
