Thanks for finding this.

I think this can be fixed by simply adding export/imort functions
that exported the sha state without the extra finalize field which
is never used for the exported state (it's only used as an internal
function parameter).

We should also add some tests to ensure that shash SHA algorithms
all use the same geometry for export/import.
