Subject: duplicate guesses with jumbo patch (was: another bug in john

I've changed the Subject to be more specific - mention just what the
problem is and what version it pertains to (the jumbo patch, not JtR
itself).  Please try to use short, yet very specific Subjects - not just
"another bug" or the like.

Are you sure you have used the right/optimal make target for your
system?  What system (hardware, OS, version) are you running JtR on, and
what make target did you use?  I doubt that your CPU is not capable of
at least MMX.

OK, this does look wrong, and I managed to reproduce the bug.  As I
expected, it is in Simon's largepasswordset patch, which I merged into
the latest jumbo patch.  Please try the attached patch - does it help?

No "earlier bug" there.  You have not found a JtR bug so far, but you
have found one in the latest jumbo patch.  Contributed patches, and
consequently the jumbo patch, are sort of expected to be buggy... but I
am fixing really nasty bugs like this one as they're being reported.
