Subject: RE: sha1 + hex salt


I have been looking at this exact same thing.  It 'should' work.  It may be
that I do not send the const values to the demangler code.  I know I did on
salts, etc.  I just have to look.  I was sure I sent the consts there,
because I did this for the PO format (uses 0xF7's or something like that).

I will see what is wrong. It 'could' be that there is some get length using
C's string functions, that is busted, thus the const1 has a length of 0.
