I think that even a format producing very frequent false positives is somewhat usable - for finding very weak passwords and/or for pre-filtering a wordlist for testing by another cracker (e.g., a shell script invoking the target program). I think moving such formats to broken/ is wrong. Instead, maybe JtR should print a warning when the currently chosen format has FMT_NOT_EXACT set. Alexander
