For a while, this workaround helped.
But some time later I got the same segfault for another format, when

$ valgrind --leak-check=full ./john --test=1 2>&1 | tee valgrind-lc-test

This time the segfault occurred when testing krb5.
That's why I reverted aab646b42afe93ca909ba1a99bc0e2a1b027a79d in my
local repository.
