WCG will abort units if it doesn't need your computer to run a replicate. I currently have 4 aborted by server units. Clicking the results name, you'll be able to see the status of the work unit. For example, on one of my aborted units, there are two valid results and because it met the minimum of two replicates, it doesn't need my computer to run it a third time.

On PrimeGrid, anyway, this happens when:

1. The required number of WU copies are sent out, to people other than you.
2. One or more people let their WUs time out.
3. You get a new copy of the WU.
4. Enough people who had timed-out work actually complete it and send it back that the WU is complete and verified.
5. Your computer contacts the server and discovers this condition before you start work on your copy of the WU.
