Subject: Password length gets shorter with time

Running on Ubuntu 18.04 I started with the following

Warning: detected hash type "rar", but the string is also recognized
as "rar-opencl"
Use the "--format=rar-opencl" option to force loading these as that type instead
Using default input encoding: UTF-8
Loaded 1 password hash (rar, RAR3 [SHA1 256/256 AVX2 8x AES])
Will run 8 OpenMP threads
Proceeding with single, rules:Single

Got to the sequential/incremental phase and it's been a while.

Looking at the progress from time to time I saw the following:

0g 42:06:53:12  3/3 0g/s 271.7p/s 271.7c/s 271.7C/s l0su2412..l0sup154
0g 46:12:31:51  3/3 0g/s 268.9p/s 268.9c/s 268.9C/s nigdbb3..nigf4it
0g 49:05:22:47  3/3 0g/s 267.6p/s 267.6c/s 267.6C/s ej1rlb..eje4k2

The number of chars got to 8 then 7 then 6.
Is this a bug or a feature?
