      Thx for reposting my message here, Phil.

      I now send an e-mail to Patrick de Geest and gave him the
      proposal to mark all prp's where he is unsure if they are
      nearest to 10^n with something like "not yet double checked".

      Dirk

      P.S.:
      I also retested Milton's nice coincidence that the smallest prp's
      above 10^n for n=12990 and n=12991 have the same k=11163. And in
      this case his statement was correct.
