Subject: Re: Even more mscash & mscash2 fixes

That is merely a bug in the test suite, not in John! The test suite 
hashes were produced without lowercasing the salts, but the format now 
correctly lowercase them. Robert B Harris commented this earlier, and I 
added a notice on the wiki after that.
