Default Confusing MFAKTc output

Hey,

My worktoDo.txt show I am working on 68969669,71,73

But MFAKTc suddenly is working on a totally different set of exponents as seen in the captured output below.


Code:
no factor for M89589361 from 2^67 to 2^68 [mfaktc 0.20 barrett76_mul32_gs]
tf(): total time spent:  2m 15.126s

got assignment: exp=89589707 bit_min=67 bit_max=68 (0.33 GHz-days)
Starting trial factoring M89589707 from 2^67 to 2^68 (0.33 GHz-days)

These exponents are not even assigned to me (and not actually in my workToDo.txt file.

The last checkpoint file in my directory is M68969669.ckp, but is hours old and Results.txt is not being written to. It as if the program in in some diagnostic loop???

I killed MFAKTc and restarted and it resumed working on M68969669.



ANYONE have a clue on what is going on here?

I can only speak to what I can observe.

68969669 was assigned to you (and only to you) by GPU72 to TF from 71 to 73.

What, exactly, is the trouble?

Hey,
The exact trouble is mfaktc began processing exponents not in my workTodo
M89589361
M89589707

failed to write anything into results.txt for hours as if it were in some diagnostic mode.

I am clueless why this happened.

As am I.

Neither M89589361 nor M89589707 ever passed through the GPU72 system according to my records.

To the best of my understanding, neither of these were ever assigned by GPU72.

There's a bug somewhere. Happy to accept it might be on my end, but I don't think so.

Looking for those exponents in the 0.20 sources, turns out nothing. There is no (easy to spot) hidden trick that would cause crunching on them. Cosmic rays? Maybe god is talking to you... you should LL those exponents, one of them might turn out a mersenne prime (assuming the expos are prime, I did not check).

Like I said. mfaktc ran these components for hours without updating results.txt. I was notified of the situation by MISFIT's stall detection. No ckp files written and no results updated....
