(In reply to heuristic computer exploration -- no proof by Charlie)

Actually there are 19,289 such pairs that had been checked up through and including the pair 6104927, 6104929. The program had missed a few by checking for sums of squares only up to int(sqrt(N)/2) as the smaller one instead of int(sqrt(N/2)).

They all still check out with the same last duodecimal digit and the confirmation is stronger than before.
