I am sorry for so later reply (during this time I got new hdd and
installed Debian to test John with mpi).

I extracted your patch from your email.
To apply it I used '.../john-1.7.8/src$ patch < ../../yourpatch.diff'.
To apply Jumbo I used '.../john-1.7.8$ patch -p1 < ../john-1.7.8-jumbo-5.diff'.

First problem I faced is that I could not apply patches correctly and
then build John. Both combinations John+patch+Jumbo5 and John+Jumbo5+patch
give me rejected hunks. So I proceeded with John+Jumbo5+patch and manually
applied rejected changes. Right?

It seems that all works good except mpi: with mpi error messages are
shown several times, for instance "No filter() ..." would be shown as
many times as listed by N in 'mpiexec -np N ./john ...'.

Should I do something? Any diffs? Test with Jumbo-6rc1? Or maybe even
fix for mpi?
