I see now it has Unicode issues too. Formats that are UCS-2 internally 
(like these) must set FMT_UNICODE and as long as they do not really 
support encodings other than ISO-8859-1 they must not set FMT_UTF8. 
mscash2-opencl does not set either, which means a user can spend months 
running with --enc=utf8 without a warning nor a chance of cracking anything.

I'll revise the FMT_UNICODE and FMT_UTF8 flags in all formats right now.
