Sure, Go ahead with its removal. All *dump files are temporary files
created during my own testing. They can be recreated very easily.

Oops, that return should have been exit(). The fix sounds good.

The RC3 works fine for me here.

$ rm ../run/john.pot ; ../run/john unused/sshdump
Loaded 2 password hashes with 2 different salts (ssh [32/64])
12345            (rsa_test.key)
12345            (dsa_test.key)

without any problems. (even runs fine under valgrind).
