For 32 bit SSE/MMX or a nonSSE build, this gets about a 10% performance improvement as a side effect.  The bug was showing up on 32 bit builds, where the tstall was listing 1190 or so passwords being found for NT (but only on 32 bit).

RC4 of jumbo-5 is released. This incorporates the same fix for the 
"mscash" format that Jim found and fixed for NT.

It also pokes with a couple of #ifdef's so two previously MPI-only 
features are enabled for normal builds too:

* Status progress and ETA for Incremental mode. After a stop-and-resume 
this is muted as it's currently not stored in the .rec file. NOTE that 
the ETA is muted (since Jumbo-5-RC1) if progress is 0.00% so for 
"normal" incremental mode you will never see any ETA. But for 
-inc:digits or -inc:alpha and fast formats, this come very handy.

* Force any size wordlist to memory, using --mem=0

I also added a few bits of more verbosity for self test failures, very 
handy when debugging complex keybuffers like NT's.
