Keep in mind that when you're redoing P-1 work you should expect a lower probability than what Prime95/mprime reports. As a rough guide, I subtract from what is reported as expected by what the previous run's probability was.

When I'm redoing poorly P-1'ed work (read: no Stage 2) I tell mprime that the test will save four LL tests, and give it between 10GB and 12GB of RAM to use. Doesn't make sense, I know, but it's my kit and electrons. On average in the 4xM range I get about a 3% success rate.
