ftree file from stage 2 overloads trash in Colab
Started testing 30.9 b1 on a couple of Colab instances on 13M PRPCF exponents (10 curves, B1=50000, B2=15000000) and noticed soon a large <exp>.ftree file (~1.2GB) during stage 2 of each curve.
When stage 2 is completed, the <exp>.ftree file gets deleted and moved to the Trash folder  exhausting soon the 15GB space limit. Once proper debugging is done, would it be possible to truncate that file to zero or minimallength, prior to deletion?

mprime?
In amongst everything else would you be willing to upgrade mprime to 30.9 so I could run ECM, please ...

Nothing specific to v30.9, problem has likely existed for a long time, but a user pointed out to me that Prime95 reports TFF results incompletely:
{"status":"F", "exponent":512792989, "worktype":"TF", "factors":["10621798844143574859209"], (etc) What's missing is bitlo, bithi, rangecomplete keys, it should look like this: {"status":"F", "exponent":512792989, "worktype":"TF", "factors":["10621798844143574859209"], "bitlo":73, "bithi":74, "rangecomplete":false, (etc) TFNF results should still include the same 3 keys with "rangecomplete":true.

Does v30.9 mean faster ECM?
Personally, I'm quite determined to see if we can reach <200 unfactored exponents per 10K range for small exponents, and the first range with >=200 unfactored is 2.22M. But the P1 bounds of 2.22M is high enough, and there is no need to reP1. (See this factoring effort page.) So I am hoping if someone can help doing ECM in the range with the benefits from v30.9.

I don't quite understand the mechanism of ECM. If I want to reach t35 on the exponent, should I pick B1=250000, complete 640 curves, and then pick B1=1000000 and complete 1566 curves? Or just choose B1=1000000 from the start of my work? Another question: Is the ECM B2 in v30.9 determined automatically (like P1 B2 in v30.8) or manually? If manually, how would I choose B2?

Like P1, prime95 ECM will choose B2 automatically. To simplify matters I'd just start with B1 = 1000000. Depending the B2 chosen by prime95 will determine the number of curves that need to be run. It will be much less than 1566.
