Output bug in mmff
Ops I thought this was a typo on http://www.prothsearch.net/fermat.html but instead it seems to be a bug in mmff:

I checked all larger factors. The program only support n>27 and n<160 and only support k>= 2^{24} or larger, depends a bit on the n and m I think. I checked all factors I can get the program to work with, which was 29<=n<=149 and most of the factors with k>10^{7}.

At least, is a very good sign that it finds them (for n>m2, if we name Fm and k*2^n+1, I wondered if it will find factors if n>m2 strictly).
(stupid question: are the third a new factor, or you tested to see if it refinds an older factor?) edit: @Gerbicz: I hope you wanted to be ironical. This is not a serious bug, as long as we have the right k, finding n is piece of cake... and about the program having the factors in a table, are you implying that George is a charlatan or what? I really hope you just joked! Last fiddled with by LaurV on 20120918 at 02:55

This is almost certainly a bug in the aptly named "dumb num" routines in tf_validate.h

dumb num fixed in 0.24. If you find a new Fermat factor in 0.23 and earlier, we'll need to verify which Fermat number the factor really divides.
