OK. So, what might make sense is if the BOINC server hands out work units only taking a candidate up a single bit level at a time. When a worker finds a factor they get a bit of "free" credit. Not the end of the world.

I see at this page 24 users have worked approximately 200 of 1,000 WUs. Once fully completed, appoximately 10 factors should have been found.
