A couple of remarks:

1. When I tried to load nt hashes (hashes-7.nt.txt for the last
contest) johnny selected lm hashes which is no surprise because john
core doesn't support nt. But after I start attack johnny becomes
unresponsive and I need to kill it.

2. Now johnny show a warning about default path to john when starting.
IMHO it's better to remove it (or move it to Settings dialog or
somewhere) because it's 1) more-or-less evident and 2) annoying.

And it needs a reformulation to improve its English. Quick patch:
