You mean salts, not entire test vectors.  It is as expected that clean
1.7.9 uses just the first two salts when benchmarking.  Jumbo's use of
only one salt is a bug.  My guess is that it's been introduced along
with support for -1000 and -1001 for BENCHMARK_LENGTH.  Can one of you
look into this, please?

Thanks,

Alexander
