No it is not an especially slow time for my computer but definitely on the high side for a SNFS ~240. Lots of scatter in the ETA vs. SNFS curve though.

Your results show that performance in Linux is better than in Windows. I don't disagree, but I eventually left Linux as I got tired of arm wrestling my machines everytime I wanted to use them...

I am unable to reproduce the failure. Need more details on how to reproduce.

I tried

Are you running on a Windows machine? The bug does not seem to occur in Linux.

D:\Factoring\lasieve4_ivybridge>gnfs-lasieve4I14e.exe would certainly seem to indicate Windows

Unsure about the Windoze port, but the original sievers long ago in the past had the childhood disease of sieving quite poorly when some unwritten rules were violated by a poly. (And it did happen with the automatically generated xyyx polys because of the specificity of the construction.) These unwritten rules were:
1. Y1 > 0
2. |Y1| <= |Y0|
These are easily accommodated for -- one by negating the rat'nl poly, and the other, by flipping both polyns on their heads (i.e. swap all poly indices cj, Yi :: i,j for deg side-i). You may want to try that.

EDIT: another, unrelated hunch to try in parallel. Because 147 happens to be 3*72, one can try to lower the skew by leaving 74 out (that is do over-multiply the algebraic poly by 3 but not by 72; leave coeffs as 7^4*x^6 + 3*41^3*y^6, and m=x/y (or y/x as the case may be, I haven't pulled out a napkin to play; this, here, is the napkin ...and its margins are too narrow). Or 3^5*x^6 + 41^3*7^2*y^6 (less likely to be useful)
