Default release abandoned numbers?

i had an issue with my one computer, and had to deinstall/reinstall the prime95 to debug.

anyway, tracked it down to a bad .ini file (not sure which, didnt want to spend the time to figure it out), and just restarted. so i was assigned a new number to factor. trouble is the old number is still listed on my status page, and likely someone figures im still working on it....


will this just expire on its own in some period of time, or should i do something to 'release' it?

thanks

It will expire in 60 days I think, but it would be better to release it if at all possible to avoid holding up that exponent; do you by any chance know which exponent it is? If so you can just run it through the manual release page and you'll be all set.
