Yes, this is a known issue in the new code. I have stared at it a long time, and can not see the problem.  The only 'real' change between sha384 and sha512, is that I have to clean the tail end of the crypt buffer prior to performing the 2nd crypt (cut it from 64 to 48 bytes of data).  But I do the same thing in the sha224 variant (but different sized of course).  The 224 works like a champ.  Magnum has also stared at it, and can not yet see the problem.  We will get it at some time.  Note, this is why it is called bleeding edge.  I did find a block of code where SHA512 was being computed (I did hmac-sha512 first for SIMD ,then cut/pasted and tweaked for sha384), but it was in code that is not used, since PLAINTEXT length is 125 which is less than the 128 [io]pad size for 64 bit SHA2.  I have not been able to fix the OMP issue however.  I will likely not have a chance to get on it until this weekend.
