I agree, in my hacked version of ecmnet I test for primality when adding the number to the server, not before each and every curve.

It may be ok if you're making ecm do multiple curves on the same number, but the way my ecmnet works is that each client does one curve and then reports back. A primality test each time would soon add up, especially as the server has had several million curves returned.
