Subject: Mscache algorithm bug

Hi!

I was trying the mscash algorithm from the jumbo patch (newest), and its
iwnt working perfecly, at least in the hash parsing/reading.
When i store my hashes in this format (where the username is the salt
and the hash is a 32char length ~md4 hash):
username:hash
its working and cracking perfectly, but if I use the other format like this:
username1:M$username2#hash
then the algorithm transforms it and make a "new" format:
username1#M$username2#hash

Then of course its not parsing rightly after the transformation.

Should I use the first one, and forget the second? It worked back in the
time, I think with the 1.7.2.
