Default more of the same; premature expiration

Please fix the PrimeNet server's mishandling of PRP DC assignments as if they were first-time assignments.
With PRP DC work preference in latest available prime95 version 29.8b6, PRP DC cat 4 work issued by PrimeNet, are mishandled by the PrimeNet server as PRP cat 0 first-time assignments, with short expiration period, and display as PRP not PRP-D. In my assignments status page:
82655831 indicated as cat 0 PRP, 5 days to go, expires in 1
82703021 indicated as cat 0 PRP, 9 days to go, expires in 7
Manual extension is ineffective as a workaround

Assignments are incorrectly listed as PRP on https://www.mersenne.org/workload/
Code:
PRP=(aid),1,2,82655831,-1,75,0,3,1
PRP=(aid),1,2,82703021,-1,75,0,3,1
but are correctly listed as PRP DC in the prime95 worktodo.txt on the client system:
Code:
[Worker #1]
PRPDC=(aid),1,2,82703021,-1,75,0,3,1

[Worker #2]
PRPDC=(aid),1,2,82655831,-1,75,0,3,1
This old system is crunching them as fast as it can. It's doing PRP DC partly because with other workloads it's not fast enough for PRP assignments.

The prime95 instance's prime.log also shows they were PRP DC assignments when issued:
Code:

They could not have been PRP first test assignments when made, since each had a PRP result already long before when these assignments were made.
