This is what appears to have happened. According to my "Observing Spider", Primenet ran out of P-1 assignments at 74 or above, and "pulled its ripcord" several times over the night until GPU72 also ran out of candidates at 74 or above.

If that's true, great! However, this seems malicious to me (or, at the very least, a badly programmed spider).
