Most of your problems are md5_gen formats that currently auto-disable on 
64-bit, that's normal. You may have a problem with HDAA, if anything. I 
get 1320 from HDAA on linux-x86-64. Otoh, I use to get md5_gen(7) 
disabled! I'm not sure why you got it and I don't. Jim knows more but 
he's a bit short on time right now.

Try each of the failing ones manually, like this:

$ ./john -test -fo=md5_gen\(7\)
Unknown ciphertext format name requested

The above suggests there was no problem, other than it is disabled. Had 
it been known, but failing, there would be a problem.

BTW, as discussed earlier, mscash is currently supposed to fail the test 
suite (with something like 22/23 guesses) as released, unless you 
replaced the test files yourself.
