Default Redoing work?

I'm testing k=161 from n=1M and up using LLR version 3.8.1.

Today I found out from these threads:
http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthr...t=12214&page=3

and
http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=13889

that there was a bug in LLR which caused it to miss primes. Should I re-do all or part of my work? Just wondering.

The bug doesn't affect base 2, so you should be fine.
