While I'm all for open source software, I believe it takes a special type of person to code for no money. Since you appear to be on the phpBB team, I solute you for being one of those types.
Unless its a script I actively use, I couldn't imagine taking time out of my day to code without of some sort of profit. But at this point, I don't code for the love of PHP or programming, I code solely for money. Not to say I despise doing it, its a job just like the stuff I did before I got into programming.

Leave them after completion? What do you mean by that? Of course you move on after completion.
I can't relate to you on the motivation issue. Programming is my main source of income; if I don't do projects, I don't eat. Lack of motivation is one of the main reasons that freelancers go under. If you aren't the type who can meet deadlines without a boss, I would recommend getting a traditional job. Although I wouldn't make any quick assumptions on this matter.
