Question Some questions on manual ECM work

I am trying to finish some small ECM work by means of manual testing.
Its seems that when I submit the results manually, it doesn't remove the corresponding manually requested assignment in the account.
Do I need to manually unreserve those assignment?

One more thing. I noted that if I didn't manually delete the "results.txt" after my manual submit on ECM works, then if I continue to submit the "results.txt" with some more results, the results that I handed in before will count twice (i.e. it didn't noticed I handed in repetitive results)
Do I need to manually delete the results file manually? Is this a bug that allow someone to hand in repetitive ECM task result for a higher rank(higher CPU credits)?

I am kind of a newbie here, so sorry if my questions is stupid.

I think the first question's answer is yes.
I meet the repeated ecm report work about ten years ago, my solution is to do the repeated report work again but do not report it.
This ecm project is wholely based on trust.

Okay, then I guess I will want to manually run those repetitive curves again.
Thank you for explaining.
