Still the core problem above is *why* did the write of the residue fail (and produce a checksum mismatch), thus not allowing to use the power=8. The "fallback" of proof power, with its imperfections, was not really designed as a fallback but more as a way to discover what power did the user specify in case it was different from 8.

We are considering an evolution of the proof format (v2), and I'll think about it in that context; but I don't plan to change the existing format.
