Subject: External mode (lack of) truncation

Solar,

I just noticed external.c does not truncate at format's max length. I 
thought it did, because I believe all other modes do. Some formats (like 
nt2) die from, for example, --ext:repeats because of this and I am 
guilty of some (or all) of them doing so :-/

Should/could this be fixed in external.c or should I produce a patch 
that fixes the affected formats? I believe doing it in external.c might 
be better for performance because we can do it blindly vs having a test 
inside the key setup loops.
