bartavelle -

I managed to reproduce the problem by generating what I think are
equivalents of your lmcracked and ntdump files - with the exact same
password that you used in your test.  With the correct password on line
16 of the output of "john -w:lmcracked -rules:nt -stdout", the NT hash
does not get cracked.  With the correct password moved to line 8, it
does.  This confirms your analysis.

cmp_all() is only used when there's no hash table - that is, when
cracking too few hashes for the use of a hash table to be worthwhile.

I'll give this a try.

Clearly, we need more test cases - not only large files, but also small
and tiny ones.

Thank you!
