It's not that funny (you probably have the same problem as me). I have that
problem with my progress indicator eheh. The kernel is executing so slow, I
don't know how do you manage it in JTR but I guess it's something similar.
I have a thread that wakes up each 3 seconds and displays the speed based
on candidates tried in that time interval. A kernel invocation takes
usually 1-2 seconds and it tries say a ndrange of 128*128 candidates. Well
speed usually goes around the same 128*128*(1 or 2) value. You can't even
measure current speed in a *nice* way. That's why I am thinking of
introducing an "average speed" for my program, it would be much more
realistic for cases like the rar one :)
