Default Intermittent (?) "result not needed"

I have been assigned the following batch of exponents for trial testing via manual testing:

55772537*
55772611*
55772659
55772681
55772711
55772729
55772779
55772831*
55772863*
55772897*
55772989
55773017
55773019
55773041
55773167

I run mfaktc and have extended limit to and including 72 bits. But when reporting the results for some of the exponents I get "results are not needed" for the 72 bit level (those marked with asterisks). While for the rest primenet happily accepts 72 bit results. What could be happening here and how could I report those results?

Thanks,
Andriy

According to the exponent status report:

http://www.mersenne.org/report_expon...&B1=Get+status

the factoring results are being reported out-of-order (the 2^72 result is submitted before the 2^71 result). Primenet does not like that. Simply resubmit the results and you should be OK.

I think ( I have no way of verifying at this point but I'll be double checking in the future) I have submitted them in order but in the reply message they were indeed in different order (I remember that part). Also I have tried to resubmit them couple of times but primenet keeps refusing them (sorry, I forgot to mention it before).

PS. I've tried to resubmit only unreported level before. It seems if I resubmit more levels primenet accepts them but then I'm getting double credit for the levels accepted twice.

The manual results page greps for the mfaktc lines first, then the mfackto lines. So if mfacktc did 2^72 and mfackto did 2^71 you would see the behavior you described.
