I've just posted an updated Win32 binary (see link in post at top of thread), which fixes a bug that could cause some factors to be missed. The bug only affects the floating-based factoring routines, i.e. only the Win32 build had this problem.

Dmitri (a.k.a. gribozavr), please update any of your Win-binary links (and local copies of the Win32 binary) as needed.

Happy hunting,
