And in EdH's case it would probably solve the looping problem because if no factors are found, the next time around an entirely new matrix will be built.

-inmem 70

Where 70 (for example) means that all 70 digit inputs or smaller are processed without saving to file.
Excellent! I'm changing all my yafu.ini files to inmem=95 (since I'm working at 91 digits right now). I'll let you know if that prevents the machines from looping. . .
