Default Where are my reservations

I added lines requesting a few double-checks to my worktodo.txt, and ran mprime -c (without stopping the main mprime job running in the background), causing the following lines to appear in my prime.log:

Code:
[Wed Feb  3 17:45:57 2016 - ver 28.7]
Registering assignment: Double check M51770489
Assignment registered as: 75B3*
Sending expected completion date for M51770489: Feb 18 2016
Registering assignment: Double check M51940249
Assignment registered as: 1927*
Sending expected completion date for M51940249: Feb 22 2016
Registering assignment: Double check M52307537
Assignment registered as: C88E*
Sending expected completion date for M52307537: Feb 26 2016
Registering assignment: Double check M53998279
Assignment registered as: DC7A*
Sending expected completion date for M53998279: Mar  1 2016
However, when I look at my worktodo.txt file now, it has no references to these M5xxxxxxx numbers. mersenne.org's list of reservations for me does mention them. Will mprime just pick them up from primenet when it runs out of work?

Is it reasonable to suspect that the mprime job which has been running in the background all this time, and which finished an LL at

Code:
[Fri Feb  5 22:47:35 2016 - ver 28.7]
Sending result to server: UID: fivemack, M67162939 is not prime. Res64: F52E*. We8: 8-digits,31443131,00000000, AID: 542A*

PrimeNet success code with additional info:
CPU credit is 169.7730 GHz-days.
rewrote the worktodo.txt file using only the reservations that it knew about when it started?

I think there is some likelihood of worktodo being rewritten. At least on the Windows side of things, the advice is always to exit the program before directly editing worktodo.txt, prime.txt, and local.txt.

Maybe you could put the assignments in a worktodo.add file to get them incorporated in your work flow. This should have worked, too, to insert these assignments in the first place. If mersenne.org still lists them, then they are yours. I would get them into worktodo.txt by whatever means.

Yes, while any instance of Prime95 is running, the text files may be overwritten at any time.

This will cause file overwriting. Only one instance may be run at any time if you want any sort of text file consistency.

The good news is that PrimeNet still has your reservations, so you may manually edit them into worktodo.txt (after stopping all running instances).

Or just add them to workdoto.add.
