The only situation I can think of where an ECM assignment is spontaneously generated is if you have the setting ContinueECM=1 in prime.txt and a factor is found.

For instance, if you have an assignment for 500 curves and a factor is found on the 293rd curve, then this setting will create a new assignment for 207 curves, so that it completes the full original allotment of 500. Otherwise, without ContinueECM=1 it just moves on to the next exponent immediately, having only done 293 curves instead of 500.

The exponent report for M7351 says there was an assignment to you on 2016-08-23. What do your prime.log and results.txt files show for that date?
