Unable to crack second half of LM hash
I ran into this issue recently during a CTF competition and spent a little time replicating a test scenario. Given a 13-char password as an LM hash, Hashcat (v5.1.0) successfully cracks the first hash but not the second.
To re-create the issue I padded Hashcat's example LM hash out to 13-chars:

HASHCATHASHCA = 299BD128C1101FD6A9BF21707E39C1C7

And ran a typical attack for LM hashes:

$ hashcat '299BD128C1101FD6A9BF21707E39C1C7' -m3000 -a3 -1 ?u?d?s ?1?1?1?1?1?1?1

$ hashcat '299BD128C1101FD6A9BF21707E39C1C7' -m3000 --show

As a sanity check I ran a John session on the same hash:

$ john lm_test.hash --format=LM-opencl --fork=4

$ john lm_test.hash --format=LM-opencl --show

2 password hashes cracked, 0 left
