Sorry, I don't understand where to check. I do know that if I look at
the output from the MTT client, I see a bunch of messages like this:

>> Reported to MTTDatabase client: 1 successful submit, 0 failed
submits (total of 6 results)

If I add up those numbers of results submitted, the totals match what I
would expect. So, there is some indication that the number of client
submissions is right.

I haven't either, but I only just started looking more closely at
results. Mostly, in any case, things look fine.
