From the output of las -h:

Code:
    -q0        left bound of special-q range
    -q1        right bound of special-q range
...
    -nq        Process this number of special-q's and stop
-nq does not specify the size of the range like the GGNFS -c does: it specifies the number of special-q that are sieved. Since only primes are used as special-q, -nq 5000 will sieve a much larger range than -c 5000; I've tested and this does indeed happen. It's better to use -q1 instead.
