FYI: in the 9M-10M range, 1007666 rels were in rels1, 666901 were in rels2, and 1662263 were in rels3 (none were in the remaining files).
I wonder if it had anything to do with the power loss/restart... It shouldn't have, since I deleted the unfinished files and restarted the ranges from scratch. Perhaps my tracking of all the different "pieces" was less than accurate... I'll work on that in the future.

Thanks for post-processing.
