I realize that non-salted (and 1 salt) runs are going to be slowed down, 
from what the default is.  However, on this machine, what is the 'true' 
speed you see, if using one of the faster methods, like 
inc:alnum, -inc:alpha, etc?  I bet the 'real' performance is much closer to 
18M than it is to 27M :)
