No, BOINC do not do that if you do it properly (by check and copy relevant parts from client_state.xml)

My experience is that BOINC will delete all downloaded wu's.

This is because when you first run a project normal way (without app_info.xml), BOINC will detect platform (OS + CPU architecture) and download matching application and wu's. When you use app_info.xml, platform will always be 'Anonymous', therefore BOINC will delete previous downloaded wu's (they are not supported by current platform).

To my opinion this is a design flaw with 'app_info' principle; specifying platform within app_info.xml should be recognized by BOINC and work like it was specified in client_state.xml, so custom applications can process previous downloaded wu's (they are required to be compatible anyway). Also <download_url> should work, so you can distribute custom applications without the need to download them manually.
