With the current version I can check for passwords longer than 15 
characters. The perfs are also better.

But no luck with my keyring for the moment. I thought that my generated 
list would be enough. :/ I have to train my memory.

And I also have to fix a point with encoding. With release files I had 
something working and that conf does not work anymore :/
