Actually I already did :)

I also had a quick check at your other formats (since I don't assume 
things anymore, lol) but did not find any similar bug - however I 
noticed you rejected usernames (used as salts) with 8-bit characters in 
NETLMv2 and NETNTLMv2. That may have been barely appropriate at the time 
you wrote it but I felt it had to be changed now, with encodings and 
stuff. So I posted a patch for that too.

Thank you!
