Default Double-Check of factors?

Just a short question out of curiosity. Are factors double-checked too? The reports contains a checksum, like it does for LL-tests, so it should be possible. Best would do dived the number by the reported factor. Is that done? If not, somebody could peak holes into the completness of our project.

Yes factors are checked upon submission to see if they divide the number. Several people have performed double and triple checks on the entire factor database as well. No inconsistencies were ever found.
