I have found several issues here. First, the output strings to benchmarking, or normal running (and logging), where the format string, and algorithm was output was happening PRIOR to init() function being called. Well, that works fine if using data that is compiled in (in the md5-gen case, it is '[gen]'). However, if we want to harvest that from the md5-gen underlying format, then we have to make sure we call init() first. Also, I had to change the init() function in all 'thin' formats. In there, I simply assign the params.algorithm_name of the thin format, to the format pointer returned (which points to the md5-gen sub format). Pretty easy. I also removed the 'linked to md5_gen(x)' line that was being output with a 'simple' printf command. I will get things cleaned up, and get a patch done. I also have another small formatting issue magnum pointed out that I will get in there. Here is an 'example' of the changed look/feel of the output.
