Default Weird problem with v5 doublecheck assignment

Hi all,

I had M17001247 assigned as a double-check exponent on PrimeNet v5, and it definitely hadn't been more than a day or two since I'd last reported progress on it to the server. Yet, somehow today it was mysteriously "unassigned"--it doesn't show up in my v5 assignments list, and when I tried a manual communication with mprime, it said "invalid assignment key" (or something like that), and then downloaded some other tasks to replace it, throwing out the worktodo.txt entry for M17001247, though thankfully it still kept the save files (~11%).

This assignment wasn't assigned by the server, instead I had entered it in my worktodo.txt manually (and made sure that it was registered with PrimeNet immediately afterwards); I can't imagine that this had anything to do with it, but I may be wrong.

I've now re-entered it into worktodo.txt and verified that the server's accepted the assignment; it's picked up from the savefile just fine. However, I am still at a complete loss as to why it was dropped in the first place.

Thanks,
Max

This will be fixed in 25.7. In the meantime, choose Advanced/ Comm and send estimated completion dates after registering any assignments.
