This task and a couple like it were showing a run time of over 19hrs (ok they might have been on hold since I joined up with prime grid), but when I had a look tonight the remaining clock was not counting down, it was jumping back and forth, mostly in the count up position instead of count down by 2-20 seconds.
This has happened before.

I noticed another projects tasks also acting funny, but did not abort them, just shut down BOINC and restarted.

Anyone know why this is happening?

In previous versions, they had the problem of stuck work units that ran indefinitely; search for "long runners".
I haven't seen it for a long time though. Chances are, it just got stuck on you system. Try a reboot.
