Thank you for this, here is a patch that should address the problems. I
hope I didn't botch it up again, but this was also made with minimal
testing :)

It is easy to fix when start and end are the beginning and the end of
the complete search space. To do the same with arbitrary search spaces,
you would need more code to :
* get the password representation of the start and end limits for the
whole search space
* find the closest passwords for both ends in and excluded (or "min")
search space, and their indexes
* compute end-start+min_start-min_end
