Double Wagstaff prime?
If M(p) = 2^p1, then M(M(p)) is called double Mersenne number, and if this number is prime, then it is called double Mersenne prime, M(M(p)) is prime for p = 2, 3, 5 and 7, but not for all 11<=p<=59, and the status is unknown for p=61. Now, we consider the Wagstaff number W(p) = (2^p+1)/3 for odd prime p, then W(W(p)) is called double Wagstaff number , and if this number is prime, then it is called double Wagstaff prime, it is known that W(W(p)) is prime for p = 3, 5 and 7, but not for all 11<=p<=29 (the p=23 case is divisible by 129469791307, see factordb), but how about p=31 or above? Are there any double Wagstaff primes > W(W(7))? (related to the conjecture that there are no double Mersenne primes > M(M(7)))

I know that if M(M(p)) is prime, then M(p) must be itself prime, similarly, if W(W(p)) is prime, then W(p) must be itself prime.

There are no double Wagstaff primes for p ≤ 23. All of these have known factors. For higher p I know of no PRP tests or even the most basic factoring attempts.
Code:

W(79) is prime, but W(W(79)) is divisible by 183756724581423634555339057*101874969893105185923314913883, hence it is composite.

W(W(31)) also has a factor. Here's what we have so far:
Code:

What program was used to find factors of W(W(61)) onward?
I tried mfaktc compiled with DWAGSTAFF on W(W(43)) but it seemed to choke on the input...
