The error is already present in john-1.7.9-jumbo-3.
(jumbo-1 and jumbo-2 are not tagged. Even if they were, I suspect the
majority of changes came with jumbo-1.)

When looking at the changes in path.c, it looks like magnum is to blame:
$ git blame path.c|cut -d" " -f 1-2|sort|uniq -c
     25 1171931f (solar
     97 ^ad53c2d (solar
     70 de989e6e (magnum
      2 df1b4729 (solar

But of course, those 70 lines could have come from patches created by
others, and magnum was just the one who integrated those patches into jumbo.

git blame also shows 69 de989e6e lines for recovery.c, 239 for john.c
(+5 8d9f3ad8 lines, definitely unrelated) and 299 for options.c (+2
23d70dc5 lines, unrelated).

john-1.7.9-jumbo-1 (1.7.8-jumbo-8 equivalent)

Anybody out there who still has a 1.7.8-jumbo-8 build and sources?
Unfortunately, I have no more time right now.
