Subject: Problems with DES valid()?


Solar,

It seems that the DES valid() function is improperly marking some
hashes as invalid...  I'm not 100% sure this is a valid hash, but it
is the right length and contains the right characters.  I'm currently
looking at a file with a thousand or so of these hashes. One such hash
is PSdSQOAjO8IcV.

Is this hash invalid or is there something wrong with valid()?  If
it's invalid, why?
