I've added FMT_SPLIT_UNIFIES_CASE, increased the out[] buffer size in
ms_split(), and added some bounds checking to ms_split() and valid().
I think that you had a buffer overflow there for usernames of longer
than 5 characters.  I'm not sure what the maximum username length is;
I've used 32.  I did not test this other than with "--test".

Revision 4.1 with the above changes is in contrib/ and is linked from
the web page.
