I am seeing an error message:

[error] can't create task for "taskname"
[error] exceeded limit of 1800 slot directories

EDIT:
Arch Linux dual socket Xeon E5-2692 V2 (Ivy Bridge) 24 core running BOINC 7.6.6

How many projects do you running? With 100 you have 2400 slots. If there is really a limit and the CPU core are more and more then we are in trouble in the future. You should post this to the boinc devs.

This is MOST LIKELY a BOINC error not a SRBase project error.

I believe you will find a solution here:
https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=10560&postid=64881
If possible update to a later BOINC version. 7.6.11 has a fix:
client: fix a bug introduced in commit [44c82be] which prevented the re-use of empty slots.
This bug affects only Mac / Linux / UNIX builds. It does not affect Windows.
