Re: factor warning

Probably this was a factor of your input number -- maybe your input number with some small primes divided out. You were factoring repunits, yes?

It would probably take gp an hour or two to find that 846035731396919233767211537899097169 is a factor. The message certainly does not mean "forever".

Don't understand where this N value from. Does this indicate
'forever'? If just several hours, it's ok.....
