I will look at that, but I would imagine if you remove a clean_input, then
what happens is the next appends end up buffer overflowing.

There is NO internal checking for overflow.  That would slow down the entire
dyna format by a huge amount, and increase the code size quite a bit.  The
entire scope of overflow elimination is in having the format author write a
proper format, and utilizing max pw len and max salt len and possibly in
switching out of SSE / back into SSE, etc.  

But I will look and see if there is something else amiss here.
