Found the bad string in /etc/boinc-client/client_state.xml and client_state_prev.xml. Stopped boinc-client and edited in the missing "g" and out the extra "/". Restarted boinc-client and it immediately connected and got work. Error gone! :-)

Have since attached this project to some other machines to v10.04 Ubuntu w/ BOINC (both x86 and x86_64) and the initial build of the client_state.xml continues to have this error in it. Can someone confirm this comes from the project server and possibly tell me the server file name??
