There have been too many of these dual assignment complaints coming in of late. I suspect there is either a new primenet bug (unlikely) or someone inadvertently triggered a known primenet shortcoming.

If Primenet hands out a factoring assignment and later gets a "no factor to 2^62" report in the manual reporting pages, then it thinks "Oh, the user is done with the assignment. I'll reassign it to someone else to do the rest."
However it is much more likely that someone was just testing a large batch of exponents to the easy 2^62 limit.

Sorry, for the trouble.
