Hi, Frederic,
As far as I know, the REPARTFREQ is set to balance the particle load for each CPU after the specified time steps.  You may ask Andreas for the details about REPARTFREQ, but why not use PartStatistics.dat file which I've already introduced to you in previous emails? As the emission model use the charge of each simulation particle to weight the number of physical particles, the number of simulation particles appeared in .oxxxx file are not what you want. The number of the physical particles in the last column of the  PartStatistics.dat is what you may be interested in.
Best regards
