Subject: Re: Even more mscash & mscash2 fixes

Even with the latest patches on john-1.7.7-jumbo-6, I am having mscash test suite issues on MacOSX (both 64 bit and SSE2 versions).  Tested with gcc-4.2.1 and gcc-4.6.0, same result.

Here is the output from ./tstall:

-form=mscash                    guesses: 24 time: 0:00:00:00 DONE
-form=mscash-utf8               guesses: 24 time: 0:00:00:00 DONE
