Why not? There's no reason a number can't have two factors that happen to have the same bit length. There's probably about a 1/4900 (70^(2)) chance that any particular Mersenne number has two factors that are 70 bits long, so it should be rare, but it's possible.

I wouldn't have been surprised to see a composite factor found by P1.

Why multiply them, instead of reporting them as they are found?
