First time I noticed that problem was on 21st of June:

But at that raw-sha1 and raw-sha1-ng (or whatever the format label was
at that time) used the same format name "Raw SHA-1", so I wrongly
assumed it was raw-sha1 hat was broken.

I could have been more careful at that time, then I would have noticed
it is not the original raw-sha1 that was broken.
And I should have repeated that test earlier.

Hopefully your fix makes it into jumbo-6.
Otherwise, Solar might release jumbo-7 immediately afterwards.
(I just read the jumbo-5 announcement again and saw that
john-1.7.9-jumbo-1- john-1.7.9-jumbo-4 existed for a few hours only...)
