In case you're wondering why these don't add up to exactly 1M, the
reason is that 31 passwords among the 1M are overly-long (not actual
passwords, but just some noise in the RockYou dump):

$ egrep -c '^.{200}' pw1
$ echo $[766630+233339+31]

Since this is the dummy format, password length is instantly known to
the loader (but was not made use of during the test cracking runs,
except by excluding these same 31).
