Default Counting ECM work twice

I was using an old computer to run a manual assignment for ECM on exponent 63667. The system wanted the computer to perform 150 curves with B1=250000, B2=2500000. When this PC was running the curve 109, I stopped Prime95 and changed the file worktodo.txt to end the computations on curve 109, then I restarted Prime95.

When the curve 109 finished I used the Manual Testing > Results interface to send the unsuccessful work to Primenet. But it appears that the work was counted twice. Look at the end of http://www.mersenne.org/report_expon...&B1=Get+status
