We refer to two completely different processes or I completely miss 
the point. After an incorrect password is submitted, the 
authentication process waits a few seconds before allowing another 
try.  Therefore if "John the ripper" is to success in two seconds, the 
correct pw must be submitted on the first try.  That might happen once 
in an astronomical number of different authentications but not 
frequently.  ... Unless magic is involved.  (?)
