Default Spooky sigma values

I'm running two instances of Prime95, each of which is running stage 1 ECM curves, and I've noticed that the sigma values for the curves within each instance is very similar. Specifically, they usually share the first 6 or 7 most significant digits.

I've attached a screen shot so you can see what I mean. Is this deliberate, or does P95 just have problems running curves on the same number with multiple workers with this as a symptom?
