Unstable was 1.5% faster in terms of c/s but bleeding cracked 2.5% more passwords despite that, from picking better candidates earlier. And that was before these latest changes :-)

Thank you for testing this!  I've just committed some further fixes to
charset.c and inc.c, so can you merge these and re-test?  I don't expect
any surprises, but more testing won't hurt.

Also, can you (or/and anyone else) test interrupting/restoring with the
new incremental mode?  Make sure it cracks the same passwords as a
non-interrupted session would.  Make sure it doesn't take significantly
more time than a non-interrupted session would.  1 second lost per
interrupt/restore is OK, more is suspicious.

Thanks again,
