We might have a brand new 32-bit and/or non-SIMD problem in raw-md5. The 
remaining TS issues are, I believe, neither TS problems nor have 
anything to do with all recent changes. I think you will find that 
0ae850f1^ (version prior to all of Solar's recent changes) and d5d4edb 
(current HEAD) gets mostly the same TS results. There are a few 
problems, nothing dramatic but I think they are real bugs in JtR and not 
TS. Don't get overwhelmed and start running around in circles, just 
calmly pick a format at a time and analyze it ;-)
