COMMENTS
It appears that if n > 39, then a(n) is positive, i.e., A071963(n) > n. This has been checked up to n = 2500.
Cilleruelo and Luca proved that A071963(n) > log log n for almost all n, a much weaker statement. Earlier Schinzel and Wirsing proved that for all large N the product p(1)*p(2)*...*p(N) has at least C*log N distinct prime factors, for any positive constant C < 1/log 2.

FORMULA
a(n) = A006530(A000041(n)) - n
EXAMPLE
There are 77 partitions of 12, and 77 = 7*11, so a(12) = 11 - 12 = -1.
