Default Asked for ECM, got TF

I've been considering switching one of the workers from my dual core i3 from P-1 to ECM. I switched worker #2 from P-1 to ECM and left worker #1 as P-1, under the Worker Windows menu option.

Worker number 2 was just assigned TF on something in the 100,000,000 from 67 to 68.

Is there a requirement I don't meet?
Something I don't know?
Bug in teh systum?

How much RAM did you dedicate to this task?

I allow Prime95 to use 6144 MB of RAM regardless of time of day.

I set all workers to P-1 again and I was still getting TF assignments. I did a bit of looking around and somehow, Makes SenseTM got selected as my default account work type. I think that was overriding my request for ECM or P-1 on that one worker, for some reason, and giving me TF instead.

I went and unreserved all my TF after resetting my work type preference and forced manual communication. It couldn't find assignment ID's for any of the TF stuff (because I had unreserved them), got rid of them, and grabbed some more P-1 instead.

Prime95 is some pretty good software, I must admit.

If you change settings from the client you need to force communication to primenet so it knows before you unassign and ask for new work.

Unhappy ECM

I have this message in prime.log:

Getting assignment from server
PrimeNet success code with additional info:
No ECM factoring assignments found.
Server assigned trial factoring work.

Any solution to get ECM?
