Yeah, that's much better.

It seems that I missed dynamic formats in my previous tests. Now I see 
some strange crashes in osc, phps and phpass. Somewhat minimal example 
for phpass is in an attached file. Run like this:

   john --format=phpass crashes_phpass.txt

If I remove some zeros from the file I get this:

   Error, invalid loop byte in a php salt
