What version are you using? Any version older than 1.7.9-Jumbo-7 should be upgraded. Also, latest git code (Jumbo 8 candidate) has an alternative ssh-ng format that is 10x faster but may produce false positives. It will still take 5 billion years to exhaust that keyspace though (not considering Moore's law).
