Because the test suite works if passwords can contain colons, and
apparently indeed contains passwords with colons, you'd have to remove
the fields after the password (using sed, I guess), and then cut -d: -f
5- -s (or just grab the password using sed instead of cut.

$ grep : *.dic
pw-utf8.dic:!¿«´¯k®åzyi3()y¯`»?¡: i

Shouldn't other dictionaries also contain a few passwords with a colon,
just to be sure?
