Default Manual ECM request missing cofactors

When requesting work type "ECM on Mersenne cofactors", either manually or via Primenet, the entry in worktodo.txt includes the existing cofactor(s) [0], e.g.


The Primenet assignment details page does not include the cofactors, e.g.


The issue is that, as documented in undoc.txt, by default ECM will stop when a new factor is found. The known cofactor is then reported as a new factor. Is there a reason not to provide cofactors on the assignment details page?

Just want to bring this issue to attention since it hasn't gone yet. The entries produced on are fine but those on are missing the known factors.
