I tried the "break on write" approach at an earlier time: http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-dev/2011/09/21/20 I did not try it on opt_errors, which appeared to be corrupted on a cut-down 1.7.7-jumbo-6 tree. Maybe I should have, but by the time I spotted this, I was already running out of time for making the release, which I did not want to postpone for another day. Alexander
