I seem to be very lucky:
My second reserved sequence finally also terminated. 534200 merges into 494194 after 2241 steps and reaches 7 after 2315 steps.

Does that count as a merge, if 3556 eventually makes it to a prime?

EDIT: Or not. rieselprime.de lists it as a merge rather than a termination. Hmmm... Last fiddled with by axn on 20090911 at 12:16

But this would cause problems if someone found a merge, countinued working on the merged sequence, and terminated it... ...but luckily we haven't had that happen yet.
