It appears that another user has already completed P-1 factoring on this exponent with the bounds B1 = 965,000, B2 = 28,708,750, and E = 6. The bounds with which I had been working were B1 = 745,000 and B2 = 14,341,250. My guess is that the existing result, having a bigger B1 and B2 plus Brent-Suyama, supersedes the work I have and therefore there is no purpose in continuing to process this P-1, right?

Correct. Though, if you also have a B-S value (E>2), there is a small probability the you can find a factor that the previous run didn't.
