```Hans,

I have checked all numbers up to n=2000 for one or more repeated values of
T_m.  Other than those you have pointed out, I have found no more.  The
following output lists tuples of the form (n, repeated value of T_m):

[(5, 2), (6, 3), (7, 3), (8, 5), (10, 5), (11, 5), (11, 10), (13, 14), (13,
18), (14, 7), (14, 23), (15, 7), (19, 30), (22, 11), (23, 11), (26, 56),
(30, 15), (31, 15), (34, 297), (43, 5708), (44, 22), (45, 22), (46, 176),
(60, 30), (60, 1575), (61, 30), (68, 385), (84, 42), (85, 42), (112, 56),
(113, 56), (154, 77), (155, 77), (202, 101), (203, 101), (270, 135), (271,
135), (352, 176), (353, 176), (462, 231), (463, 231), (594, 297), (595,
297), (770, 385), (771, 385), (980, 490), (981, 490), (1254, 627), (1255,
627), (1584, 792), (1585, 792)]

I am currently using my 800MHz phone to run my program.  When I have a
chance to run it on my PC, I will check up to n=5000, which takes a couple
of hours.
