Jason,
Cool. I updated to 1.18 on one of my PCs, although I'll have to check the other one now, since I'm not sure I did that one. It was odd that it failed twice pretty close together like that. In ~100 factorizations, that's only twice that I've ever seen that... Later, Frank

I actually just received a report that factorizations also fail after a linear algebra restart when using the latest version too; the next version will include structural changes to the linear algebra that will hopefully remove the possibility of these kinds of problems in the future. For now, restarting msieve should allow the factors to get found. jasonp Last fiddled with by jasonp on 20070409 at 15:05

I knew this wasn't aimed at me a split second after I read it, but the experience is still rather peculiar. Kind of makes me wonder why anyone would even want to show up at a John Smith convention when their name is John Smith.(Yes, there ARE conventions of this sort. They're probably even more popular now that communication over the Internet is possible.)
Carry on.
