Default Oddities in large P-1 candidates

Out of curiosity and audacity, I decided to look at the largest candidates within Prime95's spectrum (<595.8M). The top 3 have factors, but the two below it have had P-1 work done, albeit seemingly not reported properly. M595799933 is reported as still having P-1 in progress although it says it is completed below, and M595799947 shows as repeating some TF from 2012 last month and then running P-1 with 1M as the B1 bound, and reported twice. Is there any explanation for this in either case?

That range is so far from the server assigned ranges that all work done there is incidental.

There are oddities in how the P-1 programs act, particularly on gpus, apparently as a function of gpu ram, exponent, bounds, and other undetermined variables. Some runs are being made at exponents well above the assignment wavefronts. See and
