I suppose it is because to big THREADS value in cryptmd5.h. Could you
please test  192 or 160 in free time (it's not urgent)? For now I'll
try set 192 as default and hopefully this will be highest safe value.

Anyway it seems that It should be done automatically, but as far as I
remeber threads and blocks values must be known during compilation so
each kernel should be compiled for every (most plausible)
threads/blocks configuration, compilation process will take too much
time, and we don't wont that. Maybe kernels should be distributed in
precompiled version... We'll see.
