At least I'm near certain there was a bug, and that it is now fixed: We still don't have this format in pass_gen.pl so I am somewhat working in the dark. We really need to add it. * Fixes bugs in mscash and mscash2 that made them crash brutally if salt (username) was longer than the maximum supported 19 characters. It won't even load them now - this may confuse users but I'm not aware of an official way to output a notice. * Highly improved salt_hash() in oracle, mscash and mscash2 for better scaling. All three use the username (in Unicode) as salt and they previously just returned the lower eight bits of first character. I used a very common public domain hash function (djb, xor variant as I run it on UTF-16 instead of chars). magnum Content of type "text/html" skipped
