Before/after example of user database entry converted from punbb to phpbb3

I've been working almost 2 days on moving our usernames, emails, and passwords from punbb to phpbb3 as described in responses to the post
viewtopic.php?p=13220803.

I've just about given up getting this solution to work, but if someone who has done this successfully could post a couple of before/after examples of username/email/password/salt database entries that have been successfully converted from punbb to phpbb3, I'm thinking I could just throw together a few scripts myself.

In one of the responses to
viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2266196
someone said "Currently, salt (for phpbb3) is stored in positions 4-11 in the user_password field of phpbb3_users. You can tell whether this applies, if the first 3 characters of the hash are $H$."

The salt in my version of punbb is 12 characters so it looks like this might be impossible unless I make a custom login function to deal with the punbb passwords.
