Does your pwdlist.txt file contain hashes or a password list?  Searching the
list archives tehe only mention of pwdlist.txt contains hashes, however that
could just be something that you have setup.  I'm running version linux-x86 and have a
password.lst file that contains the most common passwords.  I have added a
few words to this list and it appears to work fine, hashes of those
passwords are cracked in seconds.  My run/john.conf file has the variable
"Wordlist" for the default wordlist.

What version of John are you running?
