Subject: Broken long/double DES hash split


I'm not sure if this is really broken or not, but it wasn't working
for the password file I have that uses these types of hashes.

Basically, the way I understand the format is:

^  ^           ^
|  |           + second 8 chars result
|  + first 8 chars result
+ salt for both parts

I corrected the DES_fmt.c split() function as seen in the attached
patch.  Do you have files that work with the current method?
