Here's where these got to by 1e12 candidates.  Old:

guesses: 468112  time: 1:02:55:17  c/s: 2598G  trying: askbbzdgb - askbbzdfa
766630 password hashes cracked, 233339 left


473686g 0:16:33:03 7.949g/s 16783Kp/s 16783Kc/s 4138GC/s bansetbes9..bansetta2k
773223 password hashes cracked, 226746 left

In other words, this is 76.66% vs. 77.32% of total passwords cracked
(including duplicates), although in practice the weakest passwords would
be cracked by other means first, and the percentages cracked by all
cracking modes combined would be higher.  On the other hand, in practice
the training set might not match the test set nearly so well.  (Here
both came from RockYou, although I took non-overlapping portions of
shuffled RockYou.)
