The results of a number are sometimes not returned by somebody, for example their house and computer are destroyed. When that happens, it eventually goes back in the queue and gets handed back out.
Or a person doing the trial factoring may take much longer than someone else factoring a different number. When they get turned back in, they go back in the queue for LL checks.
