I've been a GSoC student (Nmap project) for the last two years. I find
some of the tasks too small. You can reasonably expect GSoC students to
work full-time (8 or 9 hours a day) for the whole duration of the
program. Also, you are right, task definition should be a lot more
specific and detailed. It may be a good idea to let students propose
their own projects ideas. There are lots of clever students out there
and you may be surprised of what they can come up with.

Just my two cents.
