It seems GpuOwl accepts the PRP line with the cofactor present, but GpuOwl not being aware of or using the cofactor in any way may be sub-optimal. GpuOwl will simply run a classic PRP test, which guess what will turn out "not prime", but that was already known at the start.

MPrime OTH may make some use of the cofactor by running a PRP-CF test.

(best use GpuOwl for "first time PRP" or similar)
