On my UTF-8 terminal, this works fine:

$ echo бцдеф | iconv -t koi8-r | ../run/john -pipe -enc=iso-8859-1 -ru 
-stdout | iconv -f koi8-r

I get 51 words from this. If I change to -enc=koi8r or -enc=cp1251 I 
also get 51 words. Finally, if I do this:

$ echo abcd | ../run/john -pipe -ru -stdout

I also get 51. Please give more details.
