I't might be faster to rerun P-1 with high memory limits to see if the factor can be found again.
GP2 was implying that the three factors in question might be bogus. I was simply pointing out that he had not done enough testing to be sure of that.

We have the smallest factors of the exponents in question which I'm fairly certain did come from P-1. There is no need to redo the P-1 test unless someone really wants to see the original composite factor that was found.
