Shouldn't starting a test immediately using Advanced>Test also trigger a check-in with PrimeNet?
It does seem that even an Options change can trigger server contact. However, when I was doing manual-sourced LL on GPU, I generally forced a full P95, "Send expected..." contact immediately, before committing it to the food chain.
EDIT: That is, if the assignment is manually added, or put in a "worktodo.add" file, the program may not be stimulated to call home to the server at once. Advanced>Manual Communication will prevent any conflict in assignments, by confirming with the server and obtaining a key.
