Subject: Is the passwd in upper or lower case ?

Hi All,

First post to the list.  I've used bkhive-linux to extract the hashes and 
samdump2 to extract the passwd file from a MS Windows machine.  Running john 
produces something like this:
# john -i passwd-hashes-desktop.txt
Loaded 2 password hashes with no different salts (NT LM DES [32/32 BS])
D01              (LOCALMGTN01:2)
MG3657R          (LOCALMGTN01:1)
guesses: 2  time: 0:01:15:49  c/s: 2787102  trying: MG36573 - MG36592

When I ask to see the passwd I get this:
# john -show passwd-hashes-desktop.txt

2 passwords cracked, 0 left

Could you please explain if the two accounts shown (LOCALMGTN01:2 and 
LOCALMGTN01:1) are one and the same?  The option -show only shows one passwd.  
Similarly, when I tried running ophcrack I got only one password, but 
additionally it showed lower case letters:   "MG3657rd01"

Does John show only upper case?
