Default Manual Checkin of P-1 Results

Does the server do anything with the P-1 log line, or is it just accepted and thrown out?

If a factor is found during p-1, the exponent and factor is put into factors.cmp and the exponent is removed from nofactor.cmp.

If no factor is found, the bounds that were used are recorded in pminus1.txt. This way no one does another p-1 test on it, unless they manually edit worktodo.ini. (For example, the double check won't run p-1 again, nor will the triple check - if one is needed).
