this should not be a problem.

no, we already used a large prime bound of 2^33 for RSA-704 for example.

my guess is that one of the checkpoints was corrupted. Usually this is
due to a full disk.

please can you send us the full *.log file, and the *bwc*stdout and
*bwc*stderr files? Also which version of CADO-NFS are you using?

Best regards,
