How does this affect Base 5 searching?
Will this k be removed from PG?
Or will we continue searching this k, to find a smaller prime?

PG often run into task problems with both CPU and GPU enabled at the same time.
You either get too many CPU tasks, and starve your GPU, or too many GPU tasks, and starve your CPUs.

The solution is to NEVER run PG with CPU and GPU switches set at the same time.

The method I use is to decide which CPU and GPU tasks I want to run. Then determine if CPU or GPU tasks runs longer.
Then select CPU or GPU only for the longer running task, and using Job Control, select the number of long running tasks I want to download.
After downloading my longer running tasks, I switch CPU/GPU switches to the shorter task only,
and bump Job Control by the number of shorter tasks I want to download.
And then I leave it alone until I need to replenish my longer running tasks.
Then I flip my CPU/GPU switches, replenish my longer running tasks, and then switch the CPU/GPU switches back.

If your long running tasks run for a couple of days, or you have a large enough queue,
you can determine how often you need to replenish your long running jobs.

And you never have to worry about running out of short running tasks again!
