It solves the problem of hiding the actual error code. The original code 
would send true|false to HANDLE_CL_ERROR() instead of the error code. I 
can't imagine why you did that?

The original code gave this error (passing "false" to HANDLE_CLERROR()):
OpenCL error (UNKNOWN ERROR :() in file (common_opencl_pbkdf2.c) at line 
(313) - (SYNC FAILED)

With my change I get this:
OpenCL error (CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES) in file (common_opencl_pbkdf2.c) at 
line (313) - (SYNC FAILED)

That's strange. Why do you get an error when waiting for the specific 
event, but not on clFinish? Some problem is probably still there but hidden.

If I comment out the line altogether I would expect the 
CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES to occur at clFinish. But while that's probably 
still the case I do not get the hint, just a no-longer existing command 
OpenCL error (CL_INVALID_COMMAND_QUEUE) in file (common_opencl_pbkdf2.c) 
at line (315) - (clFinish error)

Anyway, trying to address the root problem (provided it is indeed 
resources) I tried lowering MAX_KEYS_PER_CRYPT but it does not help. I 
also tried using NULL for local work size to no avail. What could be the 
problem? What resources could be low? I have 48K of local memory and 1G 
of global.
