Thanks Hugo and Lucas.
My exact computation matches your results to 1506, but there is little hope
that my computation will reach your next block of results.
I am still somewhat concerned that the precision needed might be very high
to be certain the numbers starting at 1081319 are correct, but perhaps the
plots you have produced will be sufficiently convincing that there are no
intervening terms?
Either way it is clear the latter terms in the published sequence are
incorrect. For the moment I have modified (in draft) the terms as far as
1506 but if you are confident then feel free to add further terms.
Sean.
