Subject: RE: hmac-md5/sha1 in magnum-jumbo (was: 1.7.9-jumbo-7)

This is EXACTLY what I see.  A few hashed missed, and then a few hashes 
missed with the .pot file is re-run.

I will state this.  It is ONLY a few hashes VERY early on.  Like in the 
first SSE block, or first 2 blocks of SSE.  It is the same ones every 

I wonder if there was a memset or something missed in init() that later 
gets cleaned up, but in that first block run, cause a few items here and 
there to miss. NOTE, I have not dug into this (no time), but that is 
just an educated 'guess'.
