Prime95 v 30.8 build 15
Intel I5 9600K Win 10 Input line Pminus1=286037,2,52635,1,900000,5000000 Output result 286037*2^52635+1 completed P1, B1=900000, B2=24612017430, Wi4: BA8D52BA I know that was huge changes and speed up in P1 but never before B2 was higher then I request in input file. If it is some new behavior then I apologize.

This is indeed new behavior. I haven't decided if there should be an option to more closely obey the bounds specified in worktodo.txt. Right now prime95 uses all the memory available and chooses the first convenient B2 larger than the one specified in worktodo.txt.

I was out last night and today. Came home, and it looked like one of my computers had skipped turning in an assignment. Except, the results.json.txt file on the computer showed a result. The computer has turned in six other assignments after this particular one and all of them have been accepted. Thinking that possibly there was just a communication glitch, I manually turned in (copy and pasted) the result from results.json.txt.
the assignment was Pminus1=N/A,1,2,3885489,1,23400000,0,71 below is what PrimeNet returned. Does this indicate that there was an error during the run? I still have the data file for the exponent and the result from results.json.txt. Unfortunately, the terminal window does not scroll back far enough to see this exponent. Code:

3885489 = 3^4* 47969 is not a prime, so gimps doesn't track this number. Clearly something went wrong in the assignment itself.
The closest matching prime exponent with no factors is 3885487

I fat fingered the assignment. That explains so much. Thanks for pointing out the obvious answer. That was a GIGO exercise. Time to try again with the right number.

Huge B2 might imply missing factors
P1 factoring will find a factor q=2*k*p1, if k has just one factor between B1 and B2 and all remaining factors are below B1. Since 30.8 uses huge values for B2, one will miss those factors q that have more than one factor of K between the bounds. This was less of a problem when B2 was about 30 times B1.
Would it be possible and not cost too much time for the program to check a few times for factors during the stage 2 run instead of doing it at the end ?

2*k*p+1

It is not so much a problem as it is a limitation of the P1 algorithm. For smaller exponents, this shouldn't cost much. But how would this help with the aforementioned problem? Or is it an independent suggestion that has nothing to do with the problem?

Presumably on the assumption that stage2 is done to incrementallylarger bounds as the stage progresses. Stage1 bounds can be repeatedly extended from a previous result, but I'm not sure if stage2 functions that way.

It is. But the essential nature of stage 2 remains, i.e. k must have one factor between B1 & B2. That doesn't change just because you checked for the factor (i.e. did a gcd) multiple times during stage 2. I still don't understand how that's meant to find factors where k has more than 1 factor between B1 & B2.

That's how I interpret S485122's suggestion anyways. That may allow you to find the stage2 factor sooner (if less than the target B2 is required), but unless B1 is extended to above that factor then you still have the problem of more than 1 factor between B1 and B2.

I have an occasional issue of Prime95 loading a single core when it should be idle. I have PauseWhileRunning set, and right now due to another process running Prime95 has been (correctly) paused for 4 hours. But I see the Communication Thread shows as "active", prime95.exe is taking up 100% of a single core, but without any onscreen explanation (or in logs for that matter). Perhaps it's recalculating estimated completion dates? I'm not sure. Whatever it's doing, I don't think it should be doing while paused due to PauseWhileRunning (kind of defeats the purpose of the setting). Also, whatever it's doing in the communication thread should show up as an entry there (perhaps in prime.log as well).
