Not always. With a large number of hashes for a given salt (or just with a large number of hashes as NTLM ones are saltless), John uses hash table lookups instead of cmp_all(). That's what those binary_hash_*() and get_hash_*() functions are for. > But forget about cmp_all. Insert the lines in -4 patch.

This was tricky, but I think I figured it out - in cmp_one(), you're modifying global variables. However, cmp_one() may be called more than once per hash computation as there may be multiple loaded hashes in a given hash bucket. Please see the second pair of nested loops in cracker.c: crk_password_loop(). In -5, you've declared the proper local variables in cmp_one(), thereby solving the problem. Now that you know that cmp_one() may be called more than once per hash computation when large numbers of hashes are loaded, you should be able to optimize it further for such cases.
