OK, here is a workaround:

$ ./john -pipe -fo=nt pw-fake-nt100k <dict/rockyou.utf8.lst -mem=-1

What happens is we seem to be in "wordlist preload" mode, which we 
should not when using -stdin or -pipe. Good thing it surfaced. Right now 
I'm not sure what's the best real fix (probably some extra clauses in 
the preload conditionals), but adding "-mem=-1" works around it.

Solar, does this get you around the problem too?
