I checked this, and the problem is that there are two consecutive calls
to set_key() with the same index. I thought that the set_key() would
only be called with incremental indexes, except when it resets to 0.

This format (and most of the things I wrote) works with this assumption,
and only cleans things up when set_key(x,0).

Having to work with arbitrary indexes would have a performance impact on
things like raw_md5. Is that the expected behavior of JtR ?
