Well, the thing that differed was the ordering of keys tried by the last iteration of the previous benchmark (for multiple salts). NSLDAPS_fmt.c: set_key() assumes that keys are always set up starting from index 0. Not only may this assumption break with future versions of JtR, but also the code did not take into consideration that sometimes crypt_all() and cmp_all() may be called with fewer than the maximum number of keys to test. In that case, some state would be left from the previous set of keys tried. Please try the attached patch. It should fix the immediate issue that caused those test failures (it does for me).
