I changed BINARY_SIZE from 32-bit to 64-bit, because we now derive full LM hash halves (for writing to john.pot) from the binaries. This is actually two 32-bit words, not one 64-bit word. But indeed the self-test does not know that, and tries to insist on a 64-bit alignment. I think I will just drop the alignment check, and instead revise the loader so that alignment of the pointer returned by binary() would not be expected anymore. Thank you for reporting this - very timely (just before I proceeded with other changes, which would make producing clear per-change patches more difficult). Alexander
