Subject: RE: raw-sha2 CUDA fails IRL (it seems)

NOTE, the ts's pw.dic file will SMASH formats that do not protect themselves from buffer overruns. 

Ppl have been warned many times recently.  This is RW type stuff.  Expecting a 15 byte max length (or or 20 or 25 or whatever) for input passwords is not realistic.  The format has to be written to protect itself.  It is 100% fine if the format cannot find passwords longer than some set max.  But the format MUST be able to deal with a file containing longer lines.  

I am not sure this is the problem, but it really sounds like it could be.  The TS was written to try to smoke out these problems.
