This gets cracked as follows:

$ cat pw
$ ./john pw
Loaded 1 password hash (MySQL 4.1 double-SHA-1 [mysql-sha1 MMX])
microsha         (microsha)
guesses: 1  time: 0:00:00:00 100% (1)  c/s: 100  trying: microsha - Microsha

Basically, you needed to add the asterisk, and you could derive this
secret knowledge from the test hashes in mysqlSHA1_fmt.c.
