Subject: Reading loaded password hashes inside crypt-all.

Hi Solar,

Are password hashes removed from database as they are cracked ? Apparently
there are discrepancies between salt->count and number of remaining hashes
in salt->list. While salt-count is updated, it seems like salt->list is not
updated to reflect the cracked hashes.

pw = salt -> list;
i = 0;
do {
        bin = (int *)pw -> binary;
        if (bin != NULL) {
          i++ ;
    } while ((pw = pw -> next)) ;

Running this loop in the middle of cracking results in 'i' being greater
than 'salt->count' !! Some recent change might have triggered this issue.
Earlier, such behavior were not noticed.

This broke an optimization where hashes are re-loaded onto GPU after some
of them are cracked, resulting in better speed!!
