I will be making some soon also :)  I nailed the problem I had in md5_gen 
for x86-64 builds.  Found the problem, found a quick work around, and then 
did the correction properly.  The problem was in the code that would switch 
back and forth form x86-flat model to SSE.  This switching code was not 
using correct memory usage for MD5_X2 builds.  This has been corrected, and 
now x86-64 is working correctly for all md5-gen stuff.

I also have numerous other things that were corrected or improved, in 
md5-gen, and outside of it.  I will get some of the debugging code stripped 
out, and get a patch up against jumbo-4.  Hopefully, I can get this out 
tonight.

Jim.
