Default PRP DC being processed as PRP

I have set a system's prime95 to prefer PRP DC to help with the dearth of PRP DC results. (See https://www.mersenneforum.org/showth...901#post533901)
I note this morning that a recent assignment to https://www.mersenne.org/report_expo...1889037&full=1 is marked as PRP and given 7 days to report progress. This exponent already has a PRP result, so this would/should have been issued as PRP DC, and should be summarized as one. But it is being shown as a PRP first test instead, on the exponent status page, and on my accounts assignments page. It's listed as a Cat 0 PRP there, estimated time to complete 33 days, time to expiration 7 days. From prime.log:
Code:

Getting assignment from server
PrimeNet success code with additional info:
Server assigned PRP work.
Got assignment (redacted aid): PRP M81889037
This is a known issue that was reported months ago. Please fix it. See also https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=24942

A counterexample is https://www.mersenne.org/report_expo...9335979&full=1 which is a triple check, correctly listed as PRP-D, cat 4. From prime.log:

Getting assignment from server
PrimeNet success code with additional info:
Server assigned PRP work.
Got assignment (redacted aid): PRP M79335979
Maybe this one got manually tweaked on the PrimeNet server after the fact?

Note also that prime95 v29.8b6 misreports the PRPDC assignment as PRP in the Status output. The local worktodo correctly shows PRPDC=.
Quote:
PRPDC=(aid redacted),1,2,81889037,-1,75,0,3,1
The local worktodo containing PRPDC= confirms that the assignment was made as PRP DC, and both PrimeNet and prime95 are misrepresenting it as PRP instead.
