Subject: .include bug

I think I just stumbled over a bug with the .include directive. It's a
little odd I never noticed before.

Current john.conf ends like this:

# dumb-force UTF-32, in an external file
.include "$JOHN/dumb32.conf"

# Dynamic ($dynamic_n$) scripting code, in an external file
# also shows/tests that .include <file> works the same as .include
.include <dynamic.conf>

...but it turns out that last comment is not true: If I run john from
another directory than CWD (eg. ../run/john) I can use dumb32 but I
can't use -sub=list. If I run it from CWD (eg. ./john) it works fine.

It seems this is a problem is released Jumbo as well as latest git. I'm
not quite sure where to start looking.
