Subject: Re: SSE bug still there in Jumbo-5-RC6++

Erik, Jim,

Please try the attached rawMD5unicode_fmt.c

It solves ALL problems for me on x86-64, x86-sse2 and x86-mmx and the 
OpenLDAPS can be enabled again. Everything passes self tests and test 
suite. It also speed things up as I dropped saved_plain completely and 
rebuild it from the key buffer instead.

However, I must also revert the following hunk in Jim's latest SSE2 
patch in order to get NSLDAP going:

--- john-1.7.7-jumbo-5-RC6/src/NSLDAP_fmt.c	2011-05-23 
18:51:00.000000000 +0000
+++ john-1.7.7-jumbo-5/src/NSLDAP_fmt.c	2011-05-24 05:20:43.625000000 +0000
@@ -225,7 +225,8 @@ static int cmp_one(void * binary, int in
  static void
  crypt_all(int count) {
  #ifdef MMX_COEF
-	memcpy(buffer, saved_key, 32*MMX_COEF);
+	// 32 byte password (max), plus the 0x80.  We need to copy 36*MMXCOEF 
to make sure we get it all.
+	memcpy(buffer, saved_key, 36*MMX_COEF);
  	shammx((unsigned char *) crypt_key, buffer, total_len);
    static SHA_CTX ctx;

Jim, was that really a correct patch? I get 1320 found on all platforms 
without that and self test fail with it.
