Perhaps my toy example was just too small for the Perl script to cope with.
msieve filtering has the option filter_maxrels=X to limit the filtering to using the first X relations in the data file without editing the file because it does struggle with a huge excess of relations.

I agree about the issue with the negative integer. The square root doesn't like it, but that should be easy to check for and fix rather than giving up. I'll look into it.

Edit: Addressed it in my fork at Use the msieve-lacuda-nfsathome branch. Despite the name it compiles and runs fine without CUDA.
