Default Reissue exponent to different user/PC?

Does the server automatically issue an exponent to a different PC for double and triple checks? It could check the user/PC requesting work against previous work on that exponent.

It might also be worth issuing an exponent to a different user in case a user has a history of using error-prone PCs.

If it does not already do that, perhaps GP2 or others could review the files to look for cases where 2 matching results are returned by the same user OR the same PC, then we can manually reassign them.

Mitigating factor: as more and more PCs join PrimeNet, it becomes less likely that the same user / PC will get an exponent.
