It might be a good idea to rename the second parameter to ServerRetryTime or something similar. George, any thoughts?

I noticed there's a "factor P-1 redo" work type that seems to have been added some time ago: https://mersenne.org/worktypes

However, no such option appears on the manual assignments page.

Perhaps this one?

You can skip the GCD in stage 1 of P-1 factoring with this prime.txt setting:
Stage1GCD=0

Is there a way to optionally enable the Brent–Suyama extension? Or has the feature been removed from the code entirely?

You can set Debug=1 in your prime.txt file, although this is mainly for troubleshooting connection issues. Checking the Event Viewer logs will probably be more helpful.

Yes, the PrimeNet server always verifies the factor before adding it to the database. So you don't need to worry about submitting a bad factor.

I've seen an issue where P-1 continues past 100% in stage 1 until the worker is stopped. However, this has only happened like two times. I have no idea if it's related to any of the above bugs.

Unfortunately, no. If you want to change your B1 value after starting the second stage, then you'll have to start the whole thing over.

It turns out my new laptop sometimes reboots when waking up from sleep. This is apparently an issue with some Windows 10 devices. I should probably open a new thread as this is not a Prime95 issue.
