"Lehmer [7] remarked that Dickson’s Conjecture [3], should it be true, would imply that there are infinitely many prime chains of length \lambda based on the pair (a, b), with the exception of some inappropriate pairs (a, b)."

Out of curiosity, what are the inappropriate pairs? Anything more interesting than just a and b sharing a common factor?
