Thanks! That's what I've done and it is working through the msieve steps, but I have encountered another stumbling block:
matrix needs more columns than rows; try adding 2-3% more relations
This keeps coming up even when I add more relations. This might be due to the poly. I'm suspecting this may be what VBCurtis posted about:

Large A5 coefficients have lower skews than very small values.
I will keep adding for now, but at some point I may need to start over from scratch...
