In the case of wrong all 0 residues, instead of "is prime", there could be the string of 16 zeros.

The exponent history merely shows the somewhat "prettied up" version of the result text reported by the client, so it is what it is.

It'll mask the residue and hide things like user/computer name, checksums, etc that aren't really relevant, but otherwise that's what it turns in.

There's actually a lot more to it because it seems like everyone who's ever written a program to do LL or TF testing had their own idea of what format that text should look like, so there's some specific parsing going on behind the scenes to figure out details like "okay, you TF's this exponent from what bit level to what bit level, and you did or did not continue factoring if you found a factor at some point?"

So standardizing the raw result text is also a part of it to get the clean "no factor from x to y" text.
