Yes the file format is correct, but you have to specify
--format=raw-MD5 (I'm not sure if this is included in the release; you

These hashes are 31 characters long -- MD5 hex strings should be 32
characters. You might need to change the MD5 cracking code to discard
4 of the output bits or something.
