Default Server bug -- new?

I asked the server for a TF assignment using the usual form, along the following lines, and, instead of getting an error message, got half a masthead....and a long, long delay. Time is now 23:32, GMT-4.

Is this a new server bug?

The rationale for the request is my standard calculation that with GPUs at 10x faster than CPUs, they should do about 3 additional bit levels; at 100x faster, they should do about 7 extra bit levels....so in my mind it makes sense to revisit some exponents that already have a single LL test against them.

The server seems to agree, sometimes....in that a non-matching LL-D of mine has been assigned to TF. How do I get the server to assign it, though?
