For example see the TF: 67-68 tests of M15941603.

But if you look at that exponent on mersenne.ca, you see that the 67-68 factor was caught, but that a 'glitch' on the server side resulted in unnecessary second result lines.
This 'glitch' was previously pointed out concerning the Factors Missed by TF page (https://www.mersenne.ca/tfmissed.php?u=173981), where the reults are all separated by 0-1 second.

 2023-01-26, 20:40 #14 Dobri   "ม้าไฟ" May 2018 22·5·23 Posts The matter is now resolved for new submissions of TF tests with the inclusion of the notification "Redundant composite factor". For example, see M16897861 for which one more composite factor (TF:1:64) was generated by mfaktc but it was skipped manually and does not appear in the PrimeNet exponent status at the GIMPS server. Code: M16897861 has a factor: 2096988918560585239 [TF:1:64:mfaktc 0.21 75bit_mul32_gs]

It's not easy being us. But most of those who do the job actually enjoy it.

It can be fun never being seen. But always there when needed.

I am not alone in that solution space.
