Default Incorrect result

Something strange has happened for the second time.
I submit the results of trial factoring manually and when I just report a factor on its own without any other unsuccessful factoring results it shows up as:

Code:
Manual testing	40976633	F-PM1	2013-12-01 06:58	0.0	380612887341680375287	2.0139
Rather than as a normal factor found.
Whilst I am not too concerned about the credit being calculated incorrectly this is a bug somewhere in the reporting system, and yes I was just trial factoring.
It has previously happened to me thus:

Code:
Manual testing	37521089	F-PM1	2013-11-24 08:13	0.0	882286649332000698287	1.5273
Anyone else seen this happening ....

This is a well known glitch. It only happens if Factor Found leads the list submitted. The MISFIT application takes this into account and will not submit a result which does not have a No Factor on Line 1.
