Trouble with captcha in SER 13.12

After 13.12 update GSA SER stopped solving 99.9% of captchas, they simply do not show up in the GSA CB software.

After running GSA SER for a whole night & finding it's own targets - I only got 4 verified links.
All of those links had no captcha on registration page.

I have tried the following:

Reinstalled GSA SER & CB
Run GSA SER & CB as admin
Check proxies (stormproxies)
Made fresh project in GSA SER
Changed email domain (catchallboxes)

GSA SER log keeps on finding relevant sites, but I often get these issues:

"unknown registration status"
"captcha error, please try again"

What else can cause this? Trying to narrow things down.

    How does your captcha setup look like?

    Nailed down the issue.

    Seems to be related to some forum platforms, at the very least vBulletin.
    Likely some anti-spam practices from vBulletin. 

    I deselected all platforms (only doing forums) and started ticking them on 1 by 1.

    So far no issues while running GSA SER targeting SMF forums.
