Of course, I completely messed up with this one: the full sequence is indeed
(as Richard Mathar also pointed out).
It is already in the OEIS, but with a different, less natural definition:
A123120 Numbers k>0 such that m+k is not the sum of m nonzero squares
for any m>5.
Should I propose to change the definition?
Also, the sequence for cubes is already in the OEIS: A078129. This
leaves three new sequences to submit. And I'm still interested in
finiteness for the general case (k^th powers).
