"cracking" SHA1 hashes of random garbage bytes are hardly a use case john should support, IMHO. Is there any system which really accepts random bytes including line feeds and null bytes in passwords? How do you enter such passwords as a user? And even if you can, should you ever do this? How would you know (as a user who didn't audit the system in use) that the system will not silently convert your "pass\0word" into pass? Frank
