You're right. This number does have an unusually high failure rate of about 10% on Windows but not on Linux, and it's not the usual memory error. These larger numbers are pushing the boundaries of the siever. The good news is that the failures mostly happen after a few minutes of runtime so not much time is lost and that I have an explicit list of test cases to use in debugging. The bad news is that my plate is full right now, so it will be a few weeks before I can get to it. Thanks for letting me know!

Hi Greg and hello everyone.

I thought I would also report in.

in case my computer (a Dell Precision Work Station) has information you need in your investigations of these computational errors.

I'm also getting a lot of Computational errors.

I'm not an educated person, but I love Mathematics and numbers, and so I want contribute some spare CPU cycles from my computer to your Project. NFS@Home

I Wish you much success with your project NFS@Home
Best Wishes
Byron
